Bay scallops take center stage when the Dock-u-mentaries film series continues Friday, March 16th at 7 PM with What’s Cookin’ on the Cape? Cape Cod commercial shell fisherman Galon “Skip” Barlow, Jr. takes us from the ocean to the plate, providing tried and true methods for harvesting and cooking bay scallops with a complete lesson in how to find the shellfish you are looking to harvest, regulations to follow on sizes and limits, necessary gear and traditional recipes. Mr. Barlow will be on hand to answer questions following the film.
Dock-U-Mentaries is a co-production of New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park and the Working Waterfront Festival. Films about the working waterfront will be screened on the third Friday of each month beginning at 7:00 PM in the theater of the Corson Maritime Learning Center, located at 33 William Street in downtown New Bedford. All programs are open to the public and presented free of charge.
