We’re kicking off this fabulous Cape Cod summer with a July full of Fun, Fresh Fish, and Firsts!
Happy Birthday America! The Chatham 4th of July Parade would not be complete without our annual WOFF float, and this year is no exception. We’re back at it to celebrate 2015’s theme “Distinctly Chatham,” or as we like to say “D’Stinkly Chatham!” Smell the tradition as we roll down Main Street in our clamming skiff full of fishermen, fishy kids, and of course pink boots!
What would summer on Cape Cod be without fresh seafood? Fishing boats bringing in oysters, lobsters, bass, and fluke. Clambakes, fish fries, and raw bars at beachfront & backyard gatherings. Authentic regional dishes and innovative recipes experienced by year-rounders and visitors alike.
Cape Cod’s fishing family businesses work hard on the ocean to bring delicious fish to our local restaurants and dinner tables. But how do you know what fish is in season, who’s catching it, or where to get it so you can eat the freshest, most local fish around?
WOFF has your answers right here…on this very site. Our new “Get Fresh” blog series starting this month offers followers information about seasonal fish, market prices, old Cape seafood recipes, and fishermen’s tales from the sea!
Seafood education is key to supporting local fishing family businesses and the health of our great blue ocean. Know where your food comes from; know your fisherman. If you want to Get Fresh with the Women of Fishing Families this summer, click here.
Announcing a couple of FIRSTS for WOFF:
Learn how to operate a boat safely and with confidence. Join us for a full-day training on July 16th at the Monomoy Yacht Club in Chatham, MA. Learn vessel navigation underway, man overboard procedures, may-day calls, docking & anchoring, and more safety & survival skills!
The event is FREE and open to women from fishing families. To register, visit fishingpartnership.org or contact Morgan Parker at 508-237-9402, firstname.lastname@example.org OR Shannon Eldredge at 508-958-6580, email@example.com.
