Greg Walinski lives in Yarmouth and has been fishing out of Sesuit Harbor for more than 30 years as captain of the F/V Alicia Ann. He primarily fishes for codfish and haddock using tubtrawls, but as those populations of fish have declined, he has relied more and more on dogfish and bluefin tuna. He is a member of the Fixed Gear Sector.
"Dogfish are an abundant, sustainably-fished, native species and catching them is a very important part of how we fishermen make our living today. For now, all dogfish get exported to Europe and Asia, and that is a shame. If U.S. consumers want to support local fishermen, they should start asking for dogfish."
