Greetings Mermaids! My name is Gabrielle Stommel, but you know me as Gabe the Fish Babe. I spend my time on planet Earth telling FISH STORIES. My larval aquatic origins date back to my illustrious grandfather - a world renowned Oceanographer from the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution - and my salty father, a commercial ground fisherman and boat builder here on Cape Cod. Throughout my career I have sold and marketed sustainable, interesting seafood to hundreds of highly respected Chefs in New York City, Boston and across the USA. As a fishmonger I support sustainable, innovative fisheries that produce natural and delicious food. As an environmentalist I am committed to continuing my path as a seafood advocate, educator and provider in symbiosis with Mother Earth's delicate ecosystems. Here, in my underwater lair we explore - and feast upon - the sensual, the slippery and the divinely mysterious creatures of the deep! My spirit is with the sea, so follow me!
