In honor of this weeklong celebration across the state, The Rhode Island Shellfisherman’s Association will be visiting the State House on March 21st from 3:30-6:00 to provide information about the cultural and economic value of local shellfisheries.
Newly elected legislators will be given the book “Rhode Island’s Shellfish Heritage: An Ecological History” by its author (and RI Shellfisherman’s Association member) Sarah Schumann. This book was published in 2015 by RI Sea Grant, The Coastal Institute, and The Coastal Resources Center.
