Here in Brooklin we like to get our scallops fresh off the boat from our neighbor David Tarr.  This video was just released by the Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries.

The maker of this video — Maine Center for Coastal Fisheries — is a non-profit organization that works to secure a diversified fishing future for the communities of Eastern Maine and beyond.

Note of Caution: We have a member/doctor who wrote the following to us, and it's a good reminder that there's a big difference in diving professionally daily and casual recreational diving: "As a physician who has been trained in, and treated, SCUBA diving accidents, the most important rule of diving is never dive alone. This is the most common scenario for fatal accidents. I understand the necessity and difficulty for a diving buddy in this scallop diving business but a disclaimer 'Never Dive Alone' or 'Solo diving is inherently dangerous and can be deadly' should probably be there for all the non-professional divers who might be thinking that they could go on a quick solo dive for scallops or lobsters. David Tarr probably understands both the risk and the need for a warning."
