Article on the seafood-smoking industry in Maine, which is growing at the rate of 10 to 20 percent per year, and now does upwards of $25 million of business annually. Richard Penfold, general manager of Stonington Sea Products, runs a state-of-the-art smoking plant that smokes farmed-salmon, local haddock, bluefish, rope-grown mussels, and diver scallops. Smoking in Maine got its start with Belfast's Ducktrap River Fish Farm and Portland-based Horton's Seafood, which has since been bought by a Canadian company. Ducktrap, still the largest producer in the state, makes more than thirty-five products and employs 125 people.
