Beau Gribbin, owner of High Pressure Fisheries, is a life-long fisherman. Since the age of 10, following in the footsteps of his grandfather, father and uncle, his home port has been Provincetown. He started on the draggers that helped define the town in the 1980s, left to go crabbing in Alaska, but came back to longline on the Cape and now splits his time here between scalloping and lobstering.
He recently invested in a new boat, the F/V Kahuna, intending to diversify and expand his work. Gribbin is an outspoken proponent of sustainable local fisheries. Along with hosting scientists onboard for research projects, he engages in fisheries policy and advocacy that directly impacts Cape Cod fishermen. He recently went to Washington D.C to advocate for opening productive areas to scalloping, while protecting sensitive habitat. He enjoys connecting with locals and visitors to discuss the importance of fishing to the fabric and economy of the Cape.
