The Fish on Fridays series is a collaboration between Gloucester photographers Kathy Chapman and Marty Luster. Look for various aspects of Gloucester’s centuries-old fishing industry highlighted here on Fridays.
This week Kathy interviews Angela Sanfillipo about winning the prestigious Offshore Mariners’ Wives Friend of the Fishing Industry Award.
Gloucester Times calls her a tireless advocate for fishermen and the fishing industry and a “constant crusader” for fishermen’s rights for the past 37 years.
GT: “As this year’s winner, Sanfilippo becomes the second Gloucester recipient to receive the honor. The first was the Times’ late fisheries reporter Richard Gaines, who was honored, along with the Times itself, for his persistent coverage of the fisheries in 2010. Past winners have included staunch fishing industry advocates such as the late Sen. Edward Kennedy and former Congressman Barney Frank.”
