From The Sea – Our Fleet
Our fleet usually has a crew of 5-7 fishermen including the captain and most work a “trip” of 7-9 days harvesting scallops. The long liners spend 7-10 days harvesting swordfish & tuna, and 2-4 days of harvesting for our lobster and crab vessels. Our fleet is constantly being maintained to have the latest safety equipment to ensure that out crew works in the safest environment. Our “sea” team consist of over 100 dedicated and experienced fishermen, most following in the footsteps of their fathers and grandfathers!
Our fleet has modern handling and storage facilities; in fact we outfitted our scallop shucking rooms with climate control to manage the heat of the long summer days, thus increasing the quality of the scallops.
Our fleet works in complete association with NOAA and the National Marine Fisheries harvest the catch in the required areas to ensure the future of this natural resource. We track our fleet from the moment they leave the dock to the moment they tie up on the return.
A number of our fleet is outfitted with freezers. These vessels hand shuck, grade and pack fresh scallops and immediately freeze them on the boat. Truly one of the best tasting scallops, we are able to offer traceability to the vessel, location and date of harvest.
