Last night, 12/12/12 during an urban guerilla marketing mission, a GABE THE FISH BABE employed "mermaid," as we call our sales team members, was arrested in Williamsburg for spreading the word of sustainable seafood. Apparently placing stickers and flyers around town is vandalism and punishable by a night in jail. The mission of GABE THE FISH BABE is to save communities, save ecosystems and save health by learning to prepare and cook sustainable, traceable seafood with a focus on the underutilized and abundant species of local commercial fisheries.  

 

GABE THE FISH BABE is a small Point Judith, Rhode Island based seafood company that sells to chefs and individuals. GABE THE FISH BABE also runs a Community Supported Fishery (CSF) in conjunction with Vertically Integrated Farms in Hunts Point, Bronx New York. The CSF is made possible through leveraging shipping costs of our home/store delivery based FISH CLUB. More information regarding FISH CLUB below. The mislabeling of species is rampant in NYC and people are starting to realize.
