Jimmy Wampum – RI Mussel Man

“I fed about 3500 people a wild, organic, and nutritious seafood product with that one boatload, which took a few hours to get. It was such a great feeling to take an underutilized  food source that was just lying at the bottom of Narragansett Bay, in unimaginable abundance, and feed people with it. The best part of the mussel boom of 2009-2010 was the fact that it was a rare fishery that ‘the management’ had not destroyed by limiting in any way, beyond permitting and licensing. By the time ‘the management’ noticed the Narragansett Bay mussel fishery, which had not been seen in 20-30 years, the mussel resource was already well into it’s second boom year. The few guys that were involved in the fishery watched the mussels go through their normal 2-3 year growth cycle, then watched them all die off within a matter of weeks. There was nothing left to manage, thanks to mother nature. The most amazing part of the mussel fishery was-‘the experts and management’  knew virtually nothing about it, which meant the didn’t have a chance to ruin it!” Jim Russo/2014
