“Lobsterman to Sea Farmer” By DJ King Owner and Operator of King Lobsters and Montowese Bay Oysters, Branford, CT Like many commercial fishermen, DJ has changed with the times. “The lobster may never flourish again in Long Island Sound, therefore it’s necessary to pursue other viable options. Sea farming may be our ticket to future success.” Join us for an evening of sea tales and local insight on the future of commercial seaweed farming.
