Kevin aka ciabat Represents!

Kevin from New Jersey who joined the GMG Flickr group and contributes fantastic fishing industry photos from Point Pleasant New Jersey drove up to say “Hey” and attend the GFAA fundraiser at Lat 43 last night.  Kevin takes outstanding photos and loves the fishing industry and everything to do with it.   Here he is in the office.  It’s an honor to have him part of the GMG team.

Plastic fish baskets submitted to The GMG Flickr Group by ciabat

These fish baskets are what are used by a majority of fishermen on deck as they sort all the different species and sizes of fish they catch.   They are much lighter and clean up alot nicer than the old galvanized wire baskets that they used up until about the mid eighties.

After a quick google search I found a company down in Memphis that still sells the 2 bushel wire baskets-
Amazingly they sell for $84 for the wire ones while the plastic ones were priced at $23.95

When HACCP regulations came into the seafood industry it made wood handled shovels not usable for food handling and the industry turned to plastic shovels rather than the old wood handled and aluminum shovels we used growing up.  These plastic shovels suck for chopping ice and you need to put at least two or three shovel fulls of ice in the smaller plastic shovels compared to the deep strong hard aluminum shovels we used to use that would hold much more ice.
