The Cape May communities located on New Jersey's southern tip are committed to preserving their heritage and the natural beauty of their environment. These communities are rich in history, with settlements dating back as early as 1848. It is from these pristine, nutrient-rich waters located due East in the Closed Fishing area known as "The Megatron", that fishermen harvest some of the finest seasonal sea scallop in the world.
