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 Kathy continues with part two of the documentary on Felicia Oil’s family business. John Nicastro (son of Sam Nicastro) now manages the fuel dock. The first picture shows him capturing the flag on the greasy pole at Fiesta in 1955. The second is a shot taken in 2009 at the National Marine Fisheries (pictured left to right): John Nicastro, Nick Sanfilippo and Frank Cattone. The next two are photographs of the dock today and a video interview ends this series.

  • The video was beautiful. John Nicastro spoke his mind, he spoke the truth and his words touched my heart. ALL of those men who have risked life and limb and those who continue to do so despite the multitude of deterrents they face evey f@#king day are heros to me. I have such respect….God BLess Them.

  • Excellent video, speaks volumes. Yet Gloucester continues to vote for those who bring this on. ???
