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 are celebrating the cod. We photographed Connolly Seafoods’ day boats returning with cod they had hooked “the old fashion way” according to one of the fisherman.

FYI: Last week when Kathy was looking for info on salt machines she Googled “salt machines at State Fish Pier” and this is what appeared!’s-fisheries/
Much to our surprise not only is there another column out there called Fish on Fridays, but they did a story on Gloucester’s salt machines! The online journal is: Science Progress - where science, technology and policy meet.
