"So 25 years I’ve been fishing, and there was always a problem deep down in my heart.

We come in, we unload, we didn’t know what we got paid, and we didn’t know where the fish went.

That is all changed now. And a lot of it has to do with New England institutions and the work of FINE.

There’s actually a pride back in the fishing fleet, where it was lost for quite awhile.

We should be keeping it local. It’s really saving the small boat fleet."
