Meet Ryan Horwath

Ryan Horwath grew up in Rochester, New York, and lives in Buffalo with his partner, Valerie, and daughter Ava. When he's not in Western New York, he's on a small boat jigging for cod and rockfish in the pristine waters off Kodiak, Alaska or sourcing the best east coast seafood he can find from Cape Cod to Maine.
