Cape Ann Seafood Exchange Wins $363,604 To Upgrade Facility

For the second consecutive year, the Cape Ann Seafood Exchange on Rogers Street is the lone local recipient of a Saltonstall-Kennedy grant award.

NOAA Regional Administrator John K. Bullard confirmed that CASE received $363,604 in this round of funding for its three-pronged strategy that, according to its application, will  "enhance and help secure the long-term viability of CASE as a major stakeholder and critical asset to the New England fishing industry and the Gloucester waterfront."

The funding also will be used to accelerate CASE's plans to upgrade its facility while expanding its capacity "to purchase, process and market under-utilized species," CASE said in its application.
