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.

Kathy is away for a week while Marty visits Fisherman’s Wharf Gloucester as FV Athena off-loads its catch of cod, scrod and haddock.

About Marty Luster

I'm Marty Luster, a retired attorney and politician. In 2010 my wife, mother-in-law, dog and I relocated from Central NY to Gloucester. I hope my photographs and poetry(?) reflect my love for this place and her people. My picture-poem posts can be seen at and selected black and white images can be found at

  1. Love it Marty! Is the folded-over piece of paper in the last photo the bill or the check? What you and Kathy Chapman are doing with Fish on Fridays is a valuable historical record. I know, I’ve been collecting images like this for thirty years.

    FYI Scrod is a size of fish. Not a species.

    I do enjoy the Fish Friday series you and Kathy are doing. Keep it up.

    Thank you both.
    I thought scrod were small cod. Anyway, that’s what the good folks at Fisherman’s Wharf said they were off-loading.
    Fred, he’s the captain of ATHENA. I don’t know what the paperwork is.
