Gloucester Fresh Seafood
From the Gloucester Times Article, “Ninety Nine Restaurants still all in on Gloucester Fresh”
Gloucester’s Finest Seafood, which operates out of the Cape Ann Seafood
Exchange on Harbor Loop, stepped in to fill the void. Folks at the Ninety
Nine wanted to make it clear they remain committed to the agreement.
“Chef George (Tagarelis) and I have been in our restaurants all week long
with general managers and kitchen managers training on our brand-new spring menu which begins April 2 and features ‘Gloucester Fresh’ simply seasoned fresh haddock,” Charlie Noyes, president of the Ninety Nine chain and a Gloucester resident, said Thursday in an emailed statement. “I’m sure our guests at the Ninety-Nine will be as excited as we are that we continue to
serve this local favorite.”
Marine fisheries management in U.S. federal waters is governed primarily by the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act.
While regulations do periodically impose hardships on fishermen and fishing communities during times of stock rebuilding–such as is being experienced currently in the Northeast groundfish fishery–the management measures do ensure that the seafood caught by Gloucester and New England fishermen is the freshest, safest, and most sustainable source of fish on the market.
