Fisherman: Beau Gribbin
Chef: Regina Felt-Castellano, Apt Cape Cod
Longtime scallop and lobster fisherman and Fishermen's Alliance board member, Beau Gribbin, is our featured speaker at June's Meet the Fleet event. Beau owns three fishing vessels out of Provincetown and is the first fisherman on Cape Cod permitted to sell scallops, lobsters, and finfish at multiple farmers markets this summer.
Beau's success is the first of what we hope are many innovations in the local seafood supply chain, building agency for local small-boat fishermen to have more control of where their fish ends up. As is true in most of the fishing industry, this new endeavor is a testament to Beau's perseverance.
Join us for an evening on the harbor and learn from Beau as he shares stories about the process of navigating not only his boat, but the complex and confusing permitting and licensing system enabling him to innovate in his business model - and most importantly, where you can find scallops, lobsters, and finfish directly from a fishing family this summer (hint: Chatham, Brewster, Wellfleet, Truro, & Ptown farmers markets!).
Hear about Chef Regina's new endeavor, Apt Cape Cod in Brewster, and her commitment to create a truly memorable dining experience for locals and visitors alike, with a focus on regionally sourced products. For the event, she will be preparing a unique ceviche that is sure to delight your tastebuds!
Also serving tasty hors d'oeuvres from Chatham Bars Inn, locally crafted brews from Hog Island Beer Co. and ice cream treats from Ben & Jerry's North Eastham. A special thank you to Nauset Marine for hosting this event, and our exclusive Meet the Fleet Sponsor Gibson Sotheby’s International Realty who allows us to continue to offer our community these educational programs.
