Since their founding in 1969, the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives Association (GFWA) 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, establish a marine sanctuary at Stellwagen Bank, and protect the health of the oceans and the future of the fisheries that feed us all.

The GFWA erected the statue that now overlooks Gloucester Harbor honoring the "faith, diligence, and fortitude" of the Fishermen's Wives, qualities that arise in part from their strong Sicilian-American, Portuguese, Irish, and Newfoundland cultural traditions. The Wives are consummate cooks as well as dedicated activists.

This book celebrates the Wives’ cuisine and politics. Read the stories of cooking, courage, and love; savor the photographs, and feast on the foods that have nurtured Gloucester's seafaring families for generations.
