From Seafood Floor to Fish House Door
MV Times Article
To support the hard work of the Island fishing community, the Martha’s Vineyard Fisherman’s Preservation Trusts hosted “Meet the Fleet” last Thursday. This year’s fifth annual event invited the community onto the boats to give people an inside look at where their favorite fish comes from.
Island residents and visitors are afforded a wide variety of locally caught seafood in our fish markets and restaurants. But the cod, haddock, and scallops are only there because fishermen, from Martha’s Vineyard and beyond, cast their nets and their lines, rain or shine.
