Gloucester fishing industry to receive state funds


In its grant proposal, the city said it will work with the Urban Harbors Institute from the University of Massachusetts Boston campus. That institute has a working familiarity with the Gloucester port from its contributions to the city’s 2009 harbor plan and Designated Port Area Master Plan.

The goal, according to the city’s proposal, is to “distill the clear and detailed action plan that is needed to maintain the presence and function of the shore-side components of the groundfishery and that will facilitate the recovery, revitalization and resiliency of the Gloucester fishing port.”

“It’s really good that Gloucester has responded with such vigor to this,” Tarr said. “It’s clear that the administration clearly understands what the goal of this is.”

He said $70,000 of the funds will be dispersed by the state’s Department of Fish and Game upon execution of the grant agreement.

The city then must submit its final plan for DFG’s review no later than Feb. 20, 2014, with the final $5,000 to be disbursed once the city’s plan is approved by DFG Commissioner Mary B. Griffin and state Division of Marine Fisheries Director Paul Diodati.
