FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 2010 VINEYARD GAZETTE, MARTHA'S VINEYARD, MASS. SEVEN-A The Fishermen By MARK ALAN LOVEWELL Island fishermen gathered for a din- ner meeting at the Home Port Res- taurant last week. The guest speaker was Niaz Dorry, a director with the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, based in Windham, Me. She compared the plight of the small- town commercial fisherman to that of the family farm, and as with small farming, she painted a picture of hope amid innovation. Ms. Dorry told the gathering of mostly up-Island fishermen that con- certed steps are being taken in New England to protect small fishing com- munities. Describing how distant the seafood industry has become from the consumer, she said the recent locavore movement has sparked a fresh outlook in small fishing. Today's consumers want to know where their food comes from -- and the closer to home the better. Ms. Dorry said a group of Gloucester fishermen have formed a fishing version of a CSA (community supported agriculture), a program where consumers join a coop- erative by paying a sum of money, and then collecting their produce -- or in this case catch -- every week. She said the Community Supported Fishing (CSF) in Gloucester already has 1,000 members. Through the year, CSF members will receive a variety of seafood products caught and landed by local fishermen. The free dinner and talk were spon- sored by Bob and Sarah Nixon, owners of the Home Port. Flounder for the dinner was donated by Dennis Jason Jr. who owns the 42-foot wooden dragger Little Lady.There were other contribu- tors as well. The evening also included tributes for two widely respected fishermen who died this year: Eric Cattle and Tom Osmers.

Mr. Mayhew described Mr. Cattle as simply one of the best. He said he and his brother Jonathan were always happy to receive advice and encouragement from the man many considered a senior statesman among fishermen. Steve Norberg, owner of the 55-foot fishing boat Corrina, gave the tribute for Tom Osmers, the Codfather, who died March 12 at the age of 57. Mr. Mayhew spoke of Mr. Osmers's success, against all odds, in working with the leadership of the New England Fishery Management Council. "We couldn't have had a better advocate for the fisherman," Mr. Norberg said. He also said: "He did his own thing -- most of the time." Warren Doty, the cochairman of the Martha's Vineyard Dukes County Fishermen's Association, introduced the speakers. And by unanimous vote, the group elected a board of directors which includes Warren Doty, Jonathan Mayhew, Steve Norberg, Michelle Jones, Buddy Vanderhoop, Wes Brighton and Billy Alwardt. Great Weather, Good Fishing There were 67 fishermen entered in the Dick's Bait and Tackle Shop Memo- rial Day weekend fishing tournament. And while the fish were out there, they didn't start showing up at the weigh-in until later in the weekend. The heaviest striped bass and overall heaviest fish was caught by Capt. Jeff Canha of Vineyard Haven. The fish weighed 25.9 pounds. Capt. Ed Jerome of Edgartown weighed in an 8.9-pound bluefish and took first place. Captain Canha, 46, said he caught the striper at 8:30 Saturday morning off the north shore. He said he used a legal-sized scup for bait. Also on board was Ralph Buck. While they both had fish on at the same time, Mr. Buck lost his fish. Mr. Canha has now won the tourna- ment five times. Doug Asselin, who runs the store when Steve Morris is off doing errands, said the anglers were enthusiastic about Source: National Ocean Survey and Tidal Current Tables Man NIAZ DORRY SPEAKS ABOUT SAVING FAMILY FISHERMEN. the weekend of great weather and good fishing.
