Dock-u-mentaries: Dories to Draggers: The Evolution of New Bedford’s Fishing Fleet @ New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park

Author Paul Doucette was born and raised in Fairhaven, Massachusetts, the youngest son of Captain Louis Doucette, Jr., a New Bedford fisherman whose career spanned fifty years. His grandfather, Captain Louis Doucette, Sr., was one of the earliest proponents of the movement from dory fishing to trawling, a change which catapulted New Bedford to fishing prominence. Doucette will present an illustrated talk and share stories about the
evolution of fishing vessels.

“Dories to Draggers” is presented as part of the Dock-u-mentaries Film Series and is free and open to the public. Program begins at 7:00 p.m. in the theater of the New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park’s Corson Maritime Learning Center (33 William Street). Presented by New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center and New Bedford Whaling National Historical Park.
