Wicked Tuna–Capt. Bill Muniz of The “Lilly” Lands a Big One

Captain Muniz the Gloucester star on Wicked Tuna, lands a Tuna the hard way with a harpoon, just like his Portuguese ancestors from the Azores.  Also see Capt. Muniz prepare his tools of the trade.

Lye a New Friend

I ran into Lye on the breakwater, he was fishing and enjoying a day off from work. We exchanged our immigration stories of why we came to the USA. His was far more dramatic than my own. I also found that as a Vietnamese Interpreter, I found that his English was far better than my Vietnamese.  Lye a naturalized US citizen, like myself, passes on the benefits to his children, for his hard work.  We cherish our heritage, but Love America.

Cousin Joe Marcantonio Hosted Tommy & Peter from the Isle of Mauritius After The Boston International Seafood Show

Tommy & Peter from the Isle of Mauritius came to Sister Felicias after Joe invited them.  Joe works for Stavis Seafoods as a director of buying and they source a good amount of fish from The Isle Of Mauratius.

Bluefin Blowout is back!- Awesome Video From Barry Hallet!!!

Dear Joe,
When I was a kid, it was an amazing sight watching tuna taken out of the boat at the Sport Dock. Then, someone would climb the ladder and call out the weight from the scale. It had to have been a rush for the spectators at the 2014 Blowout season watching 4 fish weigh in.
I love that the Bluefin Blowout has revitalized the spirit of sport fishing in town. It is reminiscent of the days of Tournaments held over 40 years ago at the Cape Ann Tuna Club in East Gloucester.
If people are curious as to what a full day at this event was like, they may enjoy this tasty tidbit.
Get ready for the fourth annual, less than 5 months away.

Maritime Gloucester Looking For Help From Local Lobstermen

Hi Joey,

Hope all is well. We are currently looking for lobstermen to assist us with stocking our touch tanks and other aquariums this spring and summer. We would be highly interested in having anyone you know assist with the collection of local marine species for live display in our Aquarium. Any unusual lobsters, skates, or other creatures would be much appreciated starting in May. We will happily take care of transporting sea creatures from your facility to Harbor Loop. If you have any interest in helping out Maritime Gloucester in this way, please let me know.

Thanks you!
