Did You Know? (No Frozen Fishcakes Here)

That it’s not frozen processed fishcakes or lobster rolls with jalapenos (although there are definitely some hots in there), but strictly the real Gloucester’s Finest Kind?  The 2012 Gloucester’s Finest Kind calendar presents 12 of Gloucester’s working and one retired gillnetter, dragger and lobster boats and their crews as they really are – hardworking, hardy, fun loving, good looking men (and one lovely young woman) who make their livelihood from the sea, provide us with fresh fish and lobsters (whether previously liberated by Buddhist monks or not), and are part of that beautiful industry that made Gloucester great.  January features the crew of the Degelyse, and Captain Tuffy with two large unliberated lobsters.  Zach Jewell on the Lady J so naturally struck the perfect pose and was just too cute not to be on the cover.

The historic and beautiful small commercial fishing industry is in decline, drowning in the myriad state and federal regulations governing the industry.  A portion of the proceeds of this calendar will go to the Northeast Seafood Coalition, a 501(c)(6) organization dedicated to working with government regulators and environmental concerns to preserve the long-term health of fishery resources, fishing communities and the fishing industry.  The calendar will be available at Khan Studio and the Good Morning Gloucester Gallery at 77 Rocky Neck, or if you are out of area, you can order your’s at http://www.khanstudiointernational.com/gloucester%20fisherman%20calendar.htm.  Celebrate Gloucester’s beautiful industry every day of 2012, and be a part of the solution.

  1. Joey, how many years ago did we discuss this? And you said the guys would never do it! Just because I suggested fewer shirts…….and maybe one of Capt. Tuffy’s large lobsters in lieu of pants!


  2. I will be picking one up for a single girlfriend of mine. She’s always on the lookout for a nice fisherman when she comes to visit!
