PORT CLYDE, Maine — A Maine fishermen's group is getting $175,000 in federal money to help develop a program that would allow consumers to identify the fishermen who caught their seafood.

The Maine Coast Fishermen's Association is getting the money from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to work on its program that will also allow buyers to find out where and when their seafood was caught.

The association is working with Gulf of Maine Research Institute and Hannaford Supermarkets to develop a system that tracks seafood from the boat, through the supply chain and to the grocery store. The group hopes to eventually allow consumers to scan a tag at the store to get the information.
