Captain Wesley Peterson, pictured here with daughters Ann (in his arms) and June (being a handful) is a life-long local fisherman. After graduating from East Hampton High School in 2003 he earned his undergraduate degree from Johnson & Wales University in 2005. These days you can find him captaining the F/V Two Seasons where he primarily harvests squid and scallops, two of the most resilient and abundant species in the Montauk fishery.
The F/V Two Sea Sons is captained by Wes Peterson and primarily harvests scallops sand dredge and squid using a mid water trawl. Both of these gear types have been modified to avoid bycatch and have minimal to no impact on ocean habitat. Ever vigilant and always meticulous about careful packing of hauls on board the Two Sea Sons, we have found his catch to be some of the best handled seafood in the business.
At Dock to Dish Montauk we have pioneered unique community-based seafood sourcing programs which provide forward-thinking chefs and members of our cooperatives with direct dock access to incredibly fresh, wild, sustainable seafood that is accurately curated and fully trackable and traceable to the source of origin and fisher who harvested the haul. Dock to Dish Montauk is a strictly supply-driven, membership-based model which was founded by a crew of veteran seafarers who launched the original Community Supported Fishery program of New York State; and then established the first Restaurant Supported Fishery program in North America.
We really do appreciate you taking the time to do this.
