Congrats to Angela Sanfilippo, who recently became the third person inducted into the Boston Seafood Hall of Fame. Sanfilippo has been president of the Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives Association since 1977 and serves on the boards of several fishing industry organizations. Richard Stavis, CEO of Stavis Seafoods and board member of the Boston Fisheries Foundation, described her as “a legend in the industry.” “Her work has led to an impressive list of achievements which includes helping establish the Stellwagen Marine Sanctuary as well as securing health insurance for families of local fishermen,” Stavis (pictured with Sanfilippo) said in a statement. Sanfilippo was inducted into the Hall of Fame during the opening ceremony of the fifth annual Boston Seafood Festival on Sunday.
