Part of the "Collaborative Chats 2022" series, hosted by the Sea Grant American Lobster Initiative.
Understanding direct sales utilization and challenges of RI and NH lobstermen
Wednesday March 9, 5:30 p.m. ET
Extension specialists Gabby Bradt from New Hampshire Sea Grant & UNH Extension and Dawn Kotowicz from Rhode Island Sea Grant and the URI Coastal Resources Center surveyed lobstermen in Rhode Island and New Hampshire to see how--and if--they used the opportunity to sell their lobsters directly to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, when many restaurants and other retail sales were shuttered. Did it provide financial benefits? Was it worth the added work? Kotowicz and Bradt will talk about their research in this webinar.
