Early in the fall, Dana Morse from Maine Sea Grant and Hugh Cowperthwaite from CEI visited Tenants Harbor to conduct a session on scallop spat collation for local fishermen and aquaculturists. From that project 10+ fishermen set spat bags in Maine's Penobscot Bay area - in the Two Bush Channel, around Green Island and Matinicus Island. The trajectory of growing scallops begins with setting spat (seed) bags in September to capture scallop spat, which typically settles in the spat bags in mid-late fall. Spat bags remain in the water through late spring, by which time the spat has grown to scallops about 7mm-15mm in diameter. In spring, scallops are washed from the spat bags and are ready to be grown out.
