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 we have something a little different on our plate.

Gloucester’s fishing industry has many components, most of which we have explored over the past year. We’ve visited fishing vessels, spoken with captains and crew, talked to boat owners, reported on fish processing, preparation and cuisine, described the species that are caught, prepared and served here in Gloucester and touched upon the state of the industry and its future.

Left out of the discussion until now has been the “back office,” the place where orders are placed and filled, fishing activities are tracked, prices are established, records maintained and distribution is begun. The office at Intershell Seafood is not that much different from those of other businesses, but it is the less public aspect of the fishing industry and we thought you would enjoy a glimpse of this vital part of the industry that always ends with a question: “What have you got for sale today?”

Our thanks to Paul Movalli, Yebing Rome, Ruby Xie and Chris Blankenbaker at Intershell for their hospitality and cooperation.

This week, even as we mourn the loss of the captain and crew of the scalloper Foxy Lady II, we focus on the sea’s bounty.
