Shrimp season closure will hit many coastal businesses

PORT CLYDE, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Last week's decision to cancel the winter's shrimp fishing season will be felt all along the Maine coast. Several hundred fishermen work the boats that catch the shrimp.

The Maine Department of Marine Resources says last year's limited season included 153 trawlers and 44 so-called "trappers" -- lobster boats that catch shrimp in special traps instead of trawler nets.

However, many people besides fishermen will feel the loss of the seasons on shore.
