Developers Eye Boston Waterfront Seafood Hub

A group of local investors tentatively have their eye on restoring Boston's once prominent seafood industry.

"The plan envisions a 500,000-square-foot facility that would encompass processing, packaging, cold storage, selling, and shipping -- traditional Boston maritime businesses that have been squeezed in recent decades by development and residential expansion. The facility, costing as much as $100 million, could help the Boston area's declining fishing fleet expand again, said Stephanie Pollack, a spokeswoman for BlueWave Strategies who is part of the development team."
