    So sorry to hear this devastating news. Stephen is and has been an ally to all fishermen who have and who continue to fight against the injustices that have decimated and brought many in this noble industry to it’s knee’s. We need more Stephen Taufen’s to step up and carry the load.

    I just received the email I wasn’t wanting to receive. Our friend, our ally, Stephen Taufen has passed. He passed away into the comfort of our Lord, at 03:45. I am in sorrow today, and continue to reflect on the many conversations, we’ve had along the way. These were almost daily conversations over a period of years. Truthfully, we have lost a great man who cannot be replaced.
    I extend my sympathy to all that know him, his mother, his brother, his friends, and anyone that knew him.
