PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — For the first time in 35 years, there will be no shrimp season for New Hampshire fishermen.
 
This week, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission voted to shut down the shrimp season for the Gulf of Maine, which includes New Hampshire's coastal waters.
 
"It's a big blow," said Peter Kendall, manager of Yankee Fisherman's Coop.
