2018 Florida Keys Seafood Festival / Key West
About the Festival & FKCFA
The food is the most important part of the Florida Keys Seafood Festival. WEEKLY FILE PHOTO
The Key West Seafood Festival began in 2005, in part because of the devastating effect of Hurricane Wilma. The storm swept away the traps of many of the Keys fishermen, leaving them — literally — nothing to do. Local fisherman George Niles was the president of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen’s Association at the time. He and other members decided to use the down time to organize a festival to celebrate the industry, the lifestyle and, most importantly, the food. Now, after Hurricane Irma, it is just as important again to celebrate an industry vital to our community.
Besides preparing the food, the fishermen also use the festival as an opportunity to educate the public about the commercial fishing industry. U.S. Rep. Carlos Curbelo, second from left, and his aide Nicole Rapanos talk to FKCFA’s Bill Kelly and Erin Piton.
“It is with great pleasure we welcome friends, neighbors and visitors from around the globe to our 13th annual Florida Keys Seafood Festival presented by the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen’s Association. Bring your appetites and be prepared to chow down on the freshest seafood the Florida Keys have to offer including spiny lobster, stone crab, snapper and grouper, chowders and desserts all caught, cleaned, cooked and served by our commercial fishing men and women and their families,” said Bill Kelly, executive director of the FKCFA. “Join us in celebration as we give testament to the resiliency, spirit and unity that prevails in our small island communities in rebuilding our archipelago of tiny fishing villages ravaged by the impacts of Hurricane Irma in September of 2017.” The festival will take place Jan. 13-14 at Bayview Park, where thousands of locals and visitors can enjoy delicious local seafood, listen to live local music and meet the fishermen who make it all happen.
“Irma left no island untouched and had major impacts on our fisheries and the surrounding waters of our island chain,” said Kelly. “As one island community, we have gathered our resources to clear our shorelines and open water areas and jump-start the commercial fishing industry which comprises the second largest economic engine and employer in the Florida Keys. Your attendance at our seafood festival will help generate much needed revenues enabling those efforts, contribute to our scholarship program for graduating seniors throughout the islands and aid in addressing fisheries management issues critical to the sustainability of the animals we harvest for consumers worldwide.” The festival has another important function. It generates funds for the group to protect the industry and influence fisheries management rules and regulations. The FKCFA turns 28 in 2018. The seafood served is sustainably harvested with the highest regard for the Keys’ sensitive marine environment and the ecology that supports local livelihoods.
FLORIDA KEYS SEAFOOD FESTIVAL • The 13th annual Florida Keys Seafood Festival will be held on Saturday, Jan. 13 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, Jan. 14 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Bayview Park, corner of Truman Avenue and Jose Marti Drive, in Key West. • There is a $5 admission charge per person for adults; children under 12 are admitted free. • Parking info: $5 per car at Horace O’Bryant Middle School parking lot, 1105 Leon St., adjacent to Bayview Park.

WHO’S PLAYING? SEAFOOD FESTIVAL FEATURES LIVE MUSIC
Saturday 11 am to 12:45 pm
THE SHANTY HOUNDS Saturday 1pm to 2:45 pm
Cayo Ritmo is a Key West local band featuring Tyler Smith on steel pan drums, vocals and ukelele, and Ross Brown on guitar, vocals, congas and other percussion, and live loops. “Cayo Ritmo” means Island Rhythm and this group strives to bring those vibes to Key West and beyond, with reggae, calypso, soca, chacha, as well as the island’s favorite pop. At the Seafood Fest, this performance will feature Mustafa Akbar on vocals and percussion.
The Shanty Hounds are the singer/ songwriting duo of Dani Hoy and Key West Chris Rehm. They play a variety of original music and covers from many genres to entertain any crowd. Dani Hoy plays acoustic guitar and is a top-notch vocalist. Chris Rehm is a Nashville-published songwriter since 2000. The philosophy of the band is, “If you’re not having a good time, we’re going to have to ask you to leave.”
Saturday 3pm to 4:45pm
Saturday 5pm to 8pm
The Regs are a pure, non-stop adrenaline, live rock ‘n’ roll band who perform a “rockstar quality” show. The driving sound wave is delivered by Scotty Migone, one of the very best guitar players. Little John is the front man, performing lead vocals for most of the show material and managing the business of the band. Kenny Wendland and Miguel Gonzales are veteran musicians, both accomplished touring and studio professionals, who deliver beat, bass line and vocals.
Miss Demeanor is a fun, lively rock band based out of Fort Lauderdale. They focus on rock songs of the ’90s but also dabble in country, a little classic rock and some current hits. While playing the songs “everyone wants to hear,” they also play some of the “Oh wow, I remember that song!” hits.
MIGUEL PEREZ & THE SQUARE GROUPER
Sunday 11am to 1:45pm
Miguel Perez & The Square Groupers washed up on the shores of Key West ready to bring the party. Key West native and lead singer Miguel Perez sings and raps original songs about Key West and covers unique renditions of popular songs while the Square Groupers supply the smooth melodies and driving beats that keep everything airtight!
Sunday 2pm to 3:30pm
Florida slide guitar player Bill “Sauce Boss” Wharton plays the blues and cooks gumbo at every show — it’s a soul-shouting picnic of rock ’n’ roll brotherhood. Wharton brings his high-energy, gumbo-stirring, swamp funk to the gig. For those who don’t know about the Sauce Boss, he brings his own hot sauce to the gig, and he cooks gumbo while smoking his slide guitar. This year he will be adding Key West pink shrimps to his famous seafood gumbo and serving to the audience.

By the numbers By Kristen Livengood Sometimes the best method of distilling a complicated endeavor is to simplify it to a few numbers. That’s what we’ve done here for the 13th annual Florida Keys Seafood Festival. Of course, many festival goers will have questions about how Hurricane Irma affected one of the Keys’ most important industries. We have those sad numbers, too.

Take the best, freshest seafood that the Keys have to offer, then layer the taste with culinary experience of generations of fishermen. That’s right, the Key West Seafood Festival features the local bounty, prepared by the men and women who harvest it. The festival serves both those that want to sample for new favorites, and those who know exactly what they are looking for. A series of booths feature everything from conch fritters to Key West Pinks peel-and-eat shrimp. Can’t decide? Get one of the sampler plates, carry it over to the nearest, upended and empty trap serving as a table and start the flavor fest. Do it with friends, sharing sauces and passing napkins, while watching the crowds and tapping your foot to the beat of the live entertainment. And do it in the sunshine. There’s no better place than the Key West Seafood Festival in a balmy Key West park in January. key lime pie • conch ceviche • fried fish basket • fried clams basket • creamy lobster bisque • other homemade treats • hot dogs and hamburgers • grilled spiny lobster platters • smoked fish dip with crackers • bahamian style conch chowder • estella’s famous flan and natilla (custard) • stone crab claws with Key lime mustard sauce • peel & eat key west pink shrimp with cocktail sauce • fried fish platter (with slaw and black beans and rice) • sampler platters (with fish, stone crab, conch fritter, conch ceviche, key west pink shrimp and french fries) • beer • wine • soda • water • rumaritas • rum runners

COOKING FOR CLASSES The sixth edition of the “Ocean Flavors” is available and worth every mouth-watering recipe. The cookbook is a labor of love of the members of the Florida Keys Commercial Fishermen’s Association who collect recipes from friends and family. More than 500 recipes cover the gamut of goodies from appetizers to desserts, but the recipes are heavy on the delicious seafood plucked from the Keys waters. The recipes do more than make great cooks, however. It is the main fundraising tool of the FKCFA to provide scholarships for Keys students. Since 2006, more than $69,000 has ben awarded with the long-term view of improving the Keys community. (You’d be surprised how many Keys captains have business degrees!) The Weekly selected these three recipes to be featured in this guide. In 2017, $5,000 was awarded to six Keys students: Samuel Zabrano, Alyssa Turner, Angela Niles, Billy Jo Carter, Tianna Iannetta, and Louis Quad.

WWW.KEYSWEEKLY.COM OFFICIAL PROGRAM PARTNER OF THE 2018 KEY WEST SEAFOOD FESTIVAL
Generational Fishermen By Gabriel Sanchez With the commercial fishing community still coping with the effects of Hurricane Irma, Ernie Piton’s 40 years of expertise couldn’t be more useful. He was in high school when he began commercial fishing, and he was working on trap boats as early as 16. Now both his sons, Travis and Ernie III, are following in his footsteps, as the Upper Keys fishing community bounces back stronger than ever. What is the toughest job in the commercial lobster industry? The trap work is hard work, but it comes naturally to me. Getting out there and learning how to speak and represent your industry has been one of the harder things in the industry for me. What is a reality about the industry that often goes overlooked? Managing your business so it’s sustainable. What advice would you give to someone interested in starting in this business? Work hard, try to stay determined, and save your money well before you decide to get in. It takes hard work and dedication.
SONS FOLLOWING THE FATHER
What’s the craziest thing you’ve found in a trap? A gold chain. I guess someone was reaching in there for lobster. It was back when we had wooden funnels on the traps versus the plastic ones. I guess it must have just got caught, broke off, and fell in.
How would you describe the daily life of a fisherman during season? Get up at 5:15. Head out on the boat at 6. Pull traps until 4 p.m. Come in, unload, and finish up your day. Pulling traps can seem daunting, but it goes by quick by when you’re catching ’em.
So is theft a major problem with the industry? Yes. The people go out there and they rob, there are people that go out there and make a living off it. Law enforcement can sometimes be shorthanded and can’t be everywhere at once, so it’s a big problem.
What’s your boat named? And why? Risky Business II. I named it after the movie years ago; it is risky when you put your traps out there, you risk thievery, you risks storms — it’s risky business.
You’re working with FWCC and other prominent commercial fisherman to develop the generational fishing program. What’s the main goal of the program? To bring younger people into the fishing industry. What’s it like working with both of your sons in an industry you love? It’s great, it’s been fun watching them. They’ve been riding along on the boat since they were 3.
20 2018 Florida Keys Seafood Festival / Key West
What factors can determine if a commercial fisherman will be successful? The amount of traps, your knowledge, how hard you work at it when you’re not on the water. Building and fixing them. Once you catch all these lobsters, do you ever get a chance to enjoy them? I don’t eat lobster and stone crab. I eat fish like mutton and grouper. What’s your prediction for this season? It’s hard to predict, but you always hope for a great year.
