Seattle seafood: the folks behind the fish

In posts to come, I hope to share more of what I learned while researching the 2010 Dining Out cover-story for Pacific Northwest, our Sunday magazine, published November 28. Perhaps you read it over the long weekend? If not, be sure to take a look here, where you’ll meet some of the people who make ours such a scintillating seafood town. Among them, you might find a familiar face or two, including this one:

“Oyster Bill” Whitbeck, seen then and now: with his first geoduck, in 1976 and hanging with the “gooeys” at Taylor Shellfish Farms late last summer [Seattle Times photo/Mike Siegel].

Though he’s on a first-name basis with folks at some of Seattle’s best restaurants, you may not know Gene Ikeda of Mutual Fish, whom I spent the better part of a day with reporting my story. That’s Gene, below, hoisting fresh seafood in the name of good eating, while making a delivery on Capitol Hill. Tim Ferleman, a real kick-in-the-pants, is seen at right taking delivery at his homeport — the wholesale seafood division of Anthony’s Restaurants.
