We include a scallop dredge below, but it’s not the only dredge in the sea. This one is for quahogs. Photo courtesy of Chris Viprino.

The commercial fishing industry helped build the Cape, is a pivotal part of the peninsula’s present and will be essential to its future success. But it’s not a monolith. People are drawn to the harbors and ports to see the fishing boats, but those boats, like the ports, and indeed their captains, are very different. We decided to put together a photo gallery of several of the different types of gear and fishing vessels that help keep the Cape afloat, so you can better recognize them as you see them on trips to the dock to buy some fresh seafood or just appreciate the view.
