AWESOME GLOUCESTER & PERSISTENT PRODUCTS HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE MADE A LIVING “ON FISH”

In June, Awesome Gloucester commissioned Studio Fresh to create original public art to honor the legion of people in Gloucester who have made a living working “on fish” in “on land” jobs. The mural includes images of women processing fish, a lumper, and a fish cutter.

During the creation of the mural, Persistent Production, a Cape Ann based film and documentary production company, produced an original 6-minute documentary film.

The mural itself in now proudly displayed on an outdoor wall of Ocean Crest Seafood/Neptune’s Harvest in the Fort Neighborhood of Gloucester. The film will debut on November 12th at 6 PM on the Gloucester Facebook page. A community-wide conversation will also happen on November 12th at 7 PM on Zoom (https://us02web.zoom.us/j/81506707722). Both events open to public.

  1. This is awesome that people who worked on fish will be honored in a documentary. I wish my ma and dad were alive to see it. Both worked with fish, my dad, Roy Mallette, was one of the best fish cutters back then. He passed away on a boat 17 Nov 1970.
