Help Me Learn How to Cook Fresh Seafood!

Good Questions

Q: I recently moved from the Texas desert to the New England area (Connecticut, to be more precise). Now that I'm here and have all this fresh seafood at my fingertips, what do I cook? I don't know what is local and I don't know how to prepare anything like mussels, clams, scallops, or even fish. Any advice?
