Jesse Rose redefines old school

Last year on July 4, Captain Jesse Rose stopped at PJs Family Restaurant on Route 6 in Wellfleet, where he worked as a teenager.
“He gave us some minced clams for our chowder,” said owner Brian Reeves, who has known Rose for decades. “We were having such a hard time finding good product, we tasted it and were like, ‘Woah, that’s legit!’

Church among leaders at CHOW

Capitol Hill Ocean Week in Washington DC, held earlier this month, focused on leadership, and when it comes to addressing challenges posed by climate change the right kind of leaders matter.

“Climate action (should be) led by people in boots, not people in suits,” offered Sarah Schumann, who fishes in Rhode Island and Alaska.

Provincetown’s Blessing

Provincetown’s Blessing

Every port has a personality. This weekend, Provincetown’s is on display.

The Blessing of the Fleet on June 30, within a three-day Portuguese Festival, will be the 77th incarnation. In 1947, a couple of Provincetown fishermen went up to Gloucester for that port’s annual Blessing and came home wanting to celebrate their own; as each port has a personality, they can be inspired by each other and be competitive too.
