There are many copper fish for sale at the Gloucester Maritime Heritage Center.
Readers from the past may remember my feelings about the fish that people buy to display in their local home.
If you have an attachment to tropical fish or have sentimental feelings about a place you visited far away with exotic or tropical fish then that would be a reason to buy and display one. But if you are buying fish art for your Northeast home, thinking that any fish is local , please do just a tiny bit of research and discover what fish are caught around these waters- like cod, haddock, tuna, stripers and such.
I find it funny when folks put up a huge mahi mahi on their wall thinking they are decorating with a North East theme.
The fish in the picture is tagged as a haddock but from the spots on it I’d say it looks more like a codfish.
It is the work of Dana and Jeremy Hatch from Cape Ann Copper Works. Their workshop is just around the corner at 34 Mt Pleasant Ave in East Gloucester.
