Scallopfishing.net was created by Tony Alvernaz and Cameron Miele to provide information on Atlantic sea scallops, sea scallop fishing and our commercial fishing business. We own and operate the 74' fishing vessel Kathryn Marie and 83' fishing vessel Hunter. Both vessels are dedicated scallopers that operate out of New Bedford, Massachusetts, the United States' largest commercial fishing port by dollar value for the past 19 years.
The Atlantic sea scallop fishery is extremely important to the regional and national economy. It is the largest wild scallop fishery in the world. In 2019, more than 55 million pounds of Atlantic sea scallops worth over $500 million were harvested from U.S. waters.
