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.

Baby Haddock:  Now legal, but is it healthy for the fishing industry?

The Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries recently amended the state’s regulations to complement federal groundfish regulations. The minimum size of commercial Gulf of Maine haddock has been reduced from 18 to 16 inches. Similar adjustments were made regarding other species of groundfish.
 
Romeo Solviletti of Steve Connolly Seafood in Gloucester explains how what sounds like an easing of catch regulations hurts the fishery, the industry and in the long run, the consumer.

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! http://scienceprogress.org/2011/04/fish-on-fridays-maximizing-the-value-of-america’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.
