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.
Repairing the nets wlll take a few days for the crew of F/V Capt Joe. The large parking lot at the State Fish Pier is an ideal area to spread out the nets, refasten them to the float line and make other repairs. When this work is complete, they will go out to fish for cod and other ground fish.
