"The fish gets exported, and it leaves fishermen - and the entire supply chain, frankly - at the mercy of foreign currency changes and economic fluctuations," said Nancy Civetta, communications director for the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance.

For a lot of fishermen on Cape Cod, their bread and butter fishery was cod," Civetta said. "There is no cod left here, and they've had to reinvent themselves. For a decade now, they've been pursuing other species like monkfish, and skate, and dogfish. Skate and dogfish are very, very popular abroad, but not here. It's seafood Americans could embrace, if they were more aware of it, and that's what we want to do."
Although the current grant to promote Cape shark domestically runs out in June, Civetta said they would pursue new funding opportunities to continue the work they've started, especially networking with domestic buyers who will purchase the fish in large quantities for institutions.

"Dogfish is a very abundant, sustainable, local, domestically-landed, wild seafood that is primarily destined for an export market," Nancy Civetta, communications director for the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance, told SeafoodSource.

At Seafood Expo North America, the alliance held a lunch featuring pan-seared dogfish, dogfish beignets and other dishes. Members also met with supermarket and foodservice buyers who want to purchase dogfish.
While the mild, firm whitefish is used throughout the United Kingdom for fish 'n chips, as well as in other European countries for a variety of dishes, it is not well-known in the U.S., Civetta said.
"It's hard to get consumers to try it because they can't find it in their local retailers and restaurants. And retailers and restaurants find that it's hard to get people to try it because they aren't familiar with it," she said.
Creating a U.S. market is important for the livelihood of New England fishermen, Civetta and Dimin said.

Nancy Civetta, spokeswoman for the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance, predicted skate values will be down when the 2015 report comes out next year because off-Cape processors who prepare skate wings for the export market are paying 35 to 40 cents per pound this year, compared with closer to 85 cents per pound paid in 2014.

"This is a huge issue for the viability of the local fleet," Civetta said.
"A domestic market would create more stability," Civetta said.

The top five species landed by local fishermen are spiny dogfish, skates, monkfish, Atlantic sea scallops and lobster, according to Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance Communications Director Nancy Civetta.
