F/V Oceana

Captain Dean Pesante is the ruler of this ship. He had this steel dayboat gillnet boat custom built for him. Most gillnet boats have the wheelhouse fore of the anchor and net. On his boat the nets and anchors are being hauled up in the front of the boat. The Oceana is a seaworthy beast that can manage in treacherous waters with it's rolling hull. We love to buy everything from fluke, porgies, bluefish and dogfish from Dean as well as the more seasonal varieties like Black Sea Bass, Tautog and Monk.

    Thanks to Dean for supplying our fish since the very beginning!
