Eastern Fisheries is adding 24th vessel to its scallop fleet
Eastern Fisheries Inc., which bills itself as the world’s largest harvester, processor, and marketer of scallops, has added the Maelstrom to its fleet of fishing vessels. The 95-foot-long Maelstrom will be the 24th vessel in its fleet, New Bedford-based Eastern Fisheries said. The company also plans to replace four older vessels in the fleet with new boats. The first two of these new boats, the Rost and the Pyxis, are scheduled to be in New Bedford by the summer.
