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.
Although not native to the waters of Cape Ann, little compares to these Blue Point, Westport, CT oysters, shucked and devoured at Gloucester’s Wingaersheek Beach. Kathy recently mastered the art of shucking and showed Marty how to find the hinge to unlock the shells. She also shared them with Fred Bodin (Bodin Historic Photo) and made a video of his technique.
