Investigation of Fish Landing Patterns At Stonington, Connecticut with a View to Development of New Markets
Nash, Darrel A.
Annual landings have been gradually declining at the Stonington, Conencticut fishing port. The port has not developed processing or marketing facilities comparable to many other New England ports. A substantial fishery can be supported within one or two days of shore and therefore a very fresh product is landed. There remains to be developed a suitable processing/marketing mechanism to deliver this quality product to final markets. This project evaluates the potential of the existing fleet, the fishery resources which could be utilizied, and the earnigns possibilities of an established fishery there. This shows the products available to a potential buyer and the requirements in terms of earnigns to maintain a fleet at the port.Show more [+] Less [-]
