October 11, 2011- Menemsha Pond's Amazing Scallop Set

It was time for a boat ride. All summer long, we are cooped up the hatchery and rarely see the fruits of our labor in the field. 

On this beautiful October morning, I went for a boat ride with Chilmark Shellfish Constable Isaiah Schaffer to look at the hatchery scallop seed in the field nursery bags and check on the wild set.

It was amazing. the bottoms are just loaded with seed. we hope they will survive until next fall for an amazing scalloping season...
