URUGUAY SCALLOP FISHERY DEVELOPMENT

This project, conducted in the spring of 1991, entailed the development of a scallop fishery off the coast of Uruguay. BIVAR, whose vessels fished for hake, hired Coonamessett Farm to investigate the potential of a scallop resource. This involved the development of a scallop trawl, explorations to determine the location and size of the resource, and creation of a harvesting and processing system.
