National Fisherman

OCEAN CITY — The Maryland Watermen's Association is set to drop anchor on their 39th annual East Coast Commercial Fishermen's and Aquaculture Trade Exposition next weekend.

The three-day event, that starts Jan. 18 and is held at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center in Ocean City, will host a number of industry workers and experts in one of the largest shows of its kind in the Mid-Atlantic region. MWA President Larry Simns originally purchased the show, which was then approved by the Board of Directors, in 1974.

"We will have over 100 vendors with a wide range of commercial fishing gear, boats and clothing, as well as artwork, jewelry, books, videos and more," promised organizer Mick Blackistone. "We also have a children's Learning Center with oyster tonging, small crab pots that they can take home, net mending, and a waterman talking to kids about being a waterman and the gear they use."
