PHOTO GALLERY: Visiting a fish market in Sicily

Comparing fish markets around the world is always fascinating, and always reminds me of the historic depth and power of our fishery back home.
Latest example: Sicily.
Mondello, at the fringe of muscular Palermo, perches on the sea with a fine sand beach that lures tourists – sound familiar? A Coast Guard station abuts a small fishermen’s market. Mondello residents swing by to peruse and buy.
The market is makeshift, if something centuries old can be called that. There is modern canvas shade but no ice; best to get this fish to a cool place straight away. Plastic totes contain what was retrieved in small boats at sunrise, single men working single days close to shore. See photos of the market, and what’s for sale, in our photo gallery.

PHOTO GALLERY:  Fall events galore

PHOTO GALLERY: Fall events galore

The Cape is still a small enough place that we get to know a lot of our supporters personally. They also get to know us and the commercial fishermen who steer our organization. Some of our relationships extend back decades, others are more recent, but they all strengthen our community. We are proud of our events that connect the local fishing industry to neighbors and friends and we have had a fall full of them, so wanted to share some photos with you. Hope to see you soon! Meet the Fleet photos by Erin Minns Photography.

We heard tons of positive comments about last month’s Hookers Ball, about how it truly was “Aboat Time.” Those sentiments were emphasized when we published a photo gallery and it was one of the most popular, if not the most popular, in the close to five-year-history of our emagazine. So we had to do an encore. Enjoy.

PHOTO GALLERY: HOOKERS BALL

After one virtual Hookers Ball, and another clam bake-style at the Fishermen’s Alliance office, there was some talk about waiting one more year before having a huge gathering.

But John Pappalardo, CEO of the Fishermen’s Alliance, kept getting the same message from folks: “Put that damn tent up! People need something to celebrate.”

So we did and people gathered for fun, frivolity and food under the big white tent at the Chatham VFW. It was “Aboat Time.”

Check out the photos of the Hookers Ball XXI, which celebrated the Cape’s fishing industry and the community it represents,  Photos by Salty Broad Studios.

PHOTO GALLERY: OUR PORTS’ SUMMER PERSONALITIES

“Summertime and the livin’ is easy

Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high.”

Most everybody knows those lyrics from George Gershwin, just like most everyone loves the summer. For commercial fishermen summer is far from easy – although the fish may be jumping.
