Fish on Fridays

The Fish on Fridays series is a collaboration between Gloucester photographers Kathy Chapman and Marty Luster. Look for various aspects of Gloucester’s centuries-old fishing industry highlighted here on Fridays.

This week we visited Steve Connolly Seafoods and photographed the line. Fish fresh off the boats were cleaned, cut and packed.

    I’ve learned so much about this “beautiful industry” from this blog. The admiration I have for the people involved grows day by day. It’s incredibly hard work and I appreciate the recognition towards those who make a living, doing what they do to carry on traditions and all that goes into making Gloucester the incredible place it is. A thousand thank you’s to them and you both.

    Excellent work! Just excellent!

    No media outlet captures GTown like GMG.

    Bottom line. Not up for debate.
