About Us

Merroir.me is an informative forum for home-cooks and seafood enthusiasts. Here you will discover the source and the handling of the many wonderful seafood products being exported from Coastal Maine to fishmongers and restaurants in Connecticut and Westchester.  

In learning from the harvesters, fishermen and sea-farmers themselves who work on Maine’s waterfront today, we hope that you will be inspired to try our deliciously inventive recipes which were contributed by cookbook authors, restaurant chefs and home-cooks alike, all featuring Maine’s shellfish and seafood.

Merroir.me is a project from the Community Shellfish Company of Bremen Maine. Community Shellfish is home to a vital stretch of working waterfront on the Musgcongus Bay just below the mouth of the Medomak River.

This project was made possible with the support of:
