Cape Cod, MA. is where I have always spent my summers. As a child, I developed a connection with the ocean. Nowadays I spend as much time as I can watching the sea and all of its freedom and bounty.
I have learned to respect her for what she gives and what she taketh away. I catch fish to eat, share with friends, use for bait, and occasionally to sell. There is something truly satisfying about sharing a freshly caught meal with family and friends.
The fish I use for these rubbings
are simply washed off with a hose after the printing process, and then filleted for the grill while the rest of it goes back into the water to feed other creatures. Most of these fish are of the North East variety found in the waters around – Latitude: N 41 degrees 40′ by Longitude: W 70 degrees 03′. Striped Bass, Bluefish, Fluke, American Eel, Scup, Herring, Blue Crab, Lobsters, Snapper Blues, Squid, Shark, Tuna, Albacore, Cod, Sea Robbin, Skate, Tog, Black Seabass.
I owe deep gratitude to my wife, Traci, for her love and encouragement. I hope you enjoy my attempt to pay tribute to this sea life.
