F/V Sovereign Star
New Bedford, MAUnited States
Captain Abel Araujo started fishing in 1979 and spent his first five years on the water as a deckhand. Between then and captaining his first vessel, Abel served as the cook, the engineer and then the first mate of fishing vessels. Captain Abel and his crew operate not only the F/V Sovereign Star but also the F/V Kathy & Jackie and the F/V Bella Rose in New England waters. All three are state-of-the-art vessels with scallop washers and graders on-board that assure freshness and quality of the high-quality product they land in New Bedford.
