With Sadness: The passing of fishing vessel Captain Lars Sovik of Fairhaven, Ma

Letter: Fight further takeover of our fishing grounds – Jim Tarantino Gloucester, Ma.

It’s pretty simple: The Gloucester fisherman are being moved off the fishing grounds because there are more profitable harvests from the ocean. The big corporations own everything: our farmland, our government, the media, and now they’re taking the planet’s biggest asset — the ocean.

Late season views of Green Harbor from Boston Harbor Beacon

Boating season is largely over in Green Harbor, with the exception of the commercial guys. I took a trip down here on Saturday morning after not really spending much time down here during the regular season. Located at the Southern tip of Marshfield, MA, Green Harbor is one of the coolest and most laid back fishing ports on the MA coast. http://www.bostonharborbeacon.com/
