Maine: Native Fish?

toby1355 | Jul 16, 2008 05:11 PM

This might sound silly but here goes anyway. We'll be on the coast for about a week and while we know that when in Maine, lobster is the thing the question arises: what other fish are native and seasonal. For instance, checking a few menues, I don't notice shrimp as very common. Since most shrimp in my supermkt comes from Southeast Asia, I'm thinking Maine's waters are too cold. Am I right? And also is crab a native crustacean? What varieties? Ditto fin fish. I'd hate to drive all the way from L.I. and eat frozen fish from South America. So, thanks in advance, I hoping I'm not wasting people's time.
