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 winter has been tough on everyone, but the fishing industry has been particularly hard hit. In this week’s video, storm scenes set the stage for a chat with Steve Connolly Seafood‘s Romeo Solviletti who describes the effects of this stormy and frigid winter on Gloucester’s fleet, processors and customers.
Thanks to GMG’s own weatherman, Peter J. Lovasco, for his report during a 66 mph blast on the back shore.
