Since its founding in 1969, the Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives Association has been a powerful force for the conservation of New England’s precious fishing grounds and heritage. The Wives have helped improve safety standards on US vessels; create the first subsidized health plan for fishermen and establish a marine sanctuary at Stellwagen Bank. This book celebrates the Wives cuisine and politics with stories and photographs of recipes that have nurtured Gloucester’s seafaring families for generations.
