The Gloucester Fleet “Heading Out”

“Heading Out”

P1000542

Fish on Fridays

Kathy and Marty spent some time at the Jodrey State Fish Pier this week to see what was going on. This week, most of the activity centered on the herring and mackerel fleet consisting of the Challenger, the Endeavour and the Voyager. The fleet’s catch is processed whole and sold frozen as food to foreign markets or as fresh, frozen or salted bait for domestic use.
There is almost always something going on at the Pier including off-loading, salting, icing or maintaining vessels and gear.
