Fresh Fish Haven - The Iron Maiden Home for Summer

Fresh FishThe Iron Maiden officially returned home to the Waterfront on the Boston Fish Pier for the summer in early June after collecting quality fresh fish for us all. After a fresh paint job and some general maintenance, she is preparing to head out to sea as early as the end of this week.

The warm summer weather marks the annual swordfish quest back to the North East to feed; which means the Iron Maiden crew will likely be fishing the Grand Banks and George’s Bank for all the fresh fish. With the vessel fishing local waters, we will be seeing a lot more local and Canadian fish throughout the rest of summer. 

The warm weather fishing season in New England is heavily anticipated throughout the year, and we expect to see some gorgeous fresh fish this summer. Check in on our Facebook page and the BST Blog for further updates on the Iron Maiden’s progress catching us fresh fish throughout summer!

While earning his degree in business, Michael spent summers and winters working the floor at Boston Sword & Tuna and learning the seafood business from the ground up. As a fifth-generation fishmonger and handled different species, lumped sword and tuna, sorted through vats of haddock and cod, broke down salmon cases, graded the fish, and more. During this time, Mike was a veritable sea sponge, learning from the most-experienced seafood professionals in the game while acquiring the tools needed to be successful in this gritty industry.
