It's not difficult to imagine heading off to a summertime oceanside resort area on a day like today in New England. It's been snowing for a week straight (or so it seems), and today was no different.
As I sit in the airport, hoping I will make it to Ocean City, Md., today, I know I'm not headed to a warm destination. But from everything I hear about the Maryland Watermen's Association's East Coast Commercial Fishermen's & Aquaculture Trade Exposition, the warmth will be all in the people.
Come by booth 309 if you find yourself in Ocean City this weekend. And if you can't find us there, pop your head into the nearest crab or oyster shack.
Despite the many ups and downs of the Chesapeake crab fishery, there are still baymen on the water, and we are more than happy to partake of their bounty.

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute is partnering with restaurants throughout the region for an Out of the Blue promotion of cape shark, also known as dogfish.

Cape shark is abundant and well deserving of a wider market.
