Cape Seafood Organizations Awarded Grants

The Baker-Polito Administration announced $105,500 in grants Monday to seven marketing campaigns, two based on the Cape, designed to increase awareness and demand for Massachusetts seafood products.

The grants were awarded through the Division of Marine Fisheries’ Seafood Marketing Pilot Grant Program, a new program created to support the commonwealth’s fishing and seafood industries.

The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance was awarded $15,000 for a demonstration titled, “Supporting the Local Economy: Demonstrating Skate and Dogfish.” Two boat-to-plate recipe demonstration videos on dogfish and skate will be created for social media.

Wellfleet SPAT was awarded $20,500 for “Taste the Merrior: an Educational Experience”, which is a pilot educational and tasting event in Boston this spring to reacquire and increase market share for Wellfleet oysters and clams after the damaging norovirus outbreak last fall.
