Last year, 5,000 samples were served from 62 gallons of Fishermen’s Wive’s redfish soup. Unbelievably, this year’s batch of soup looks like an even greater amount. A tremendous effort on behalf of our community has been extended by Angela Sanfilippo, Sal Di Stefano, Cara Ring, Mark Ring, Natalie Ring, Tom Ring, Mariella Cannavo, Margherida Bellicia, Todd Snopkowski from Snap Chef, Misslewood Executive Chef Sean McCarthy, Jason Hakes, Abde Lhamid Yacine, Ethan Piper, Madi Woods, Patrick Finocchiaro, and everyone involved in the food preparations. Three cheers and a thundering shout out to Mayor Sefatia Romeo Thekan for her vision in bringing Gloucester for the second year in a row to the Seafood Expo North America, and a huge thank you to everyone working so hard to make SENA16 a great success.

Happy Birthday Cara Ring!
Preparations are well underway for tomorrow’s big opening day of the Seafood Expo North America, with fantastic teamwork from Angela Sanfilippo, Sal Di Stefano, Cara Ring, Mark Ring, Natalie Ring, Tom Ring, Mariella Cannavo, Margherida Bellicia, Todd Snopkowski from Snap Chef, Misslewood Executive Chef Sean McCarthy, Jason Hakes, Abde Lhamid Yacine, Ethan Piper, Madi Woods, and Patrick Finocchiaro.
Last year, Gloucester’s booth was quite possibly the most popular in the show as guests enjoyed samples of the fresh homemade Fishermen’s Wives redfish soup prepared and served by Mayor Sefatia, Angela Sanfilippo, and their amazing team. Mark Ring explains the fish is ocean perch, or redfish, which is a deep water species, caught at hundreds of fathoms beneath the sea.

GLOUCESTER (CBS) – Hurricane Irene could cause major damage to homes and the economy in Gloucester.
Gloucester residents still talk about The Perfect Storm back in the 90′s, but no one is quite sure what Irene is going to bring.
People in the fishing industry and those who live along the water are preparing for the absolute worst.
“It’s certainly going to get rough, and that could impact the whole lobster industry, the gill netters, everyone. It’s not good for us at all,” said Tom Ring

When you are done watching the video you just gotta check out the website of cameraman Rick Macomber www.macomberproductions.com. He does a series of videos of the Tekka fresh fish marketplace in Little India Singapore. Visually stunning work really.

Here is Tom Ring sitting across from my desk here in the office. Tom Fishes for Lou Williams aboard The Orin C but used to fish with Linda Greenlaw, the female skipper from the Perfect Storm. Tom is one of the great storytellers on the Gloucester waterfront. Every time he steps foot in the office you can be assured there will be a spectacle.
Here is a picture of Tom’s hand-
Tom Ring Talks About Swordfishing With Linda Greenlaw, Not Being Able To Go Fishing Today And More
The old dog still hops around the deck like a cat.
Tom is another great character on the Gloucester waterfront. You could listen to his crazy stories for hours and hours and die laughing. There are a few guys like this still around. Guys like Manny and Tom Porter, Busty Brancleone, Tom Ring, Carlo Moceri- the guys that should have book deals because they were real hard working fishermen and not posers that drove around in trucks all day avoiding work like the plague.

Tom used to fish with Linda Greenlaw. You can check out her website by clicking this text. He tells me that she is in the process of doing a show about swordfishing but the first trip they went out they ended up having to return to port broke down.
