Thanks to Captain Fred, first mate Tim and Tracey Abboud from Mass Lobster for hosting us on a trip out in Boston Harbor to learn more about the commercial lobster industry. These guys work hard! We were joined by Tracy from the Mass. Dept. of Fisheries and Wildlife who explained all about the research they conduct to monitor the lobster population. Lobstering is a major part of our commercial fishing industry and especially on the South Shore. It was great to get a first-hand perspective and learn about some of the challenges our lobstermen face and how we can help. It was also a beautiful day to be out on the water.
