Jane DeLay, Fisherman
Matthew Beaudin, Chef
Jane DeLay has always been motivated by her love for the ocean. In 2001, she coordinated the "Fisherman's Forum on Marine Protected Areas", a three-day conference to explore options for establishing MPA's on the central coast.
Jerry Wetle, Fisherman
Matthew Beaudin, executive chef at Monterey Bay Aquarium, spent years honing his palate by working around the world. From Hong Kong to Rwanda, the West Indies and Cincinnati, he plied his trade and learned local spices and traditions.
Steve Scheiblauer, Harbormaster
When Jerry Wetle was 12 years old, he would ride his skateboard around Monterey and often end up at the harbor. One day, a fisherman who was tying off asked for Jerry's help with a line.
Calder Deyerle, Fisherman and Buyer
Steve was the harbormaster in Monterey for 22 years before retiring in in February 2017. Prior to this, he was the harbormaster in Santa Cruz, where he first got to know commercial fishermen and learn about what they needed in a working harbor.
Joeleen Lambert, Fisherman
Calder Deyerle fishes for Dungeness crab, King salmon, California halibut, black cod and rockfish on the Monterey Bay. He grew up crewing for his father Richard and uncle Daniel Deyerle, owners of Sea Harvest restaurants and a wholesale seafood business by the same name.
Giuseppe "Joe" Pennisi, Fisherman
When F/V Pioneer docked in Moss Landing, Joeleen Lambert could be seen tapping rapidly on her flip phone, making sure the catch from that day would be offloaded to buyers.
Alan Lovewell, Community Supported Fishery
Guiseppe “Joe” Pennisi is a third generation Monterey fisherman. He began fishing at age 7, deckhanding on weekends and during summer vacation.
Alan founded the Community Supported Fishery, Real Good Fish (formerly Local Catch Monterey Bay in 2012) as a solution to reconnect our communities to the ocean and local fisheries.
