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 finishes up her series on the Felicia Oil family business located in Gloucester’s Fort. We see that they have diversified into the home oil business because of the declining fishing industry (John Nicastro’s interview from last week). http://youtu.be/SLqoQtNwmLc

Today John manages the dock and the In/Out board illustrates the past and present. His sons (Paul on the left and Sal on his right) run the home oil business. Paul describes their current situation in the video (last frame).
