Abraham Torres Rendon, 25, is facing charges of drunken driving, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, speeding and leaving the scene of property damage, among others, in connection with the incident that left the fish market in ruins.
The sale of local shellfish has sometimes slowed but hasn't
stopped on Martha's Vineyard, which has become an Island of
harvestable shellfish in a sea of toxic red tide.
Louis Larsen, owner of the Net Result in Vineyard Haven, which
wholesales much of the Vineyard shellfish to local restaurants,
estimates that overall Island demand for shellfish is off 50-60 per cent
from normal mid-June levels.
