PORTLAND — New England's shrimp-fishing season gets under way this week.
The start of the season begins Wednesday, but isn't expected to last long with a quota of only 1.4 million pounds. That's about one-fourth last year's catch of 5.3 million pounds.
Net fishermen have a quota of about 1.2 million pounds and can fish only two days a week.
Trap fishermen have a quota of about 200,000 pounds. Their season begins Feb. 5.
