Thank you for your comments.

The Port of New Bedford is America's #1 Fishing Port with fish landings valued at $369 million. It has become New England’s seafood hub, with more than 30 processors and distributors, ranging in size from high-volume international wholesale to small-scale local retail.

The Port of New Bedford is close to historic and bountiful fishing grounds; an ideal harbor supporting New England’s largest fishing fleet. Nantucket Shoals, Georges Bank and the Great South Channel—grounds blessed with abundant sea scallops and an array of fish—all lie within a day’s steam. Each year, nearly 50 million pounds of sea scallops land on New Bedford docks, making the city America’s most profitable port for the last ten years.
