THE CAPTAIN'S STORY
Capt Edward James Edmond was born and raised in small fishing village named, “Oyster Bay”, which is located on the North Shore of Long Island New York. Edward began fishing with his father and Grandfather over 40 years ago. In his early 20’s, he became an independent bayman and commercial fisherman on the world famous Pine Island Bluepoint Oyster Boats. In 1992 he moved to Anna Maria FL where he was partial owner/operator of Off Shore Marine Towing and Rescue Company. Edward became a US Coast Guard licensed Captain in 1999 and ran his own fishing charter business for several years.
In 2011 Captain Ed married the love of his life and high school sweetheart, Stephanie. With his first mate by his side and intrigued by the highly sustainable mullet fishery for over 20 years, Captain Ed returned to his true passion and started commercial fishing again. This inspired him to research the driving force behind this enormous fishery.
The end result…. BOTTARGA!!!
