You think it’s tough to shovel out a parking space after 10 inches of snow?
Try unloading 40 tons of fresh-caught groundfish on the windy New Bedford waterfront.
Workers at Blue Harvest spent the snowy morning offloading some 80,000 pounds of haddock, Acadian redfish and pollock that was hauled in by the 85-foot FV Harmony, which just returned from a weeklong trip to Georges Bank.
“It’s business as usual — rain, snow or shine …” said Alex Mulholland, Blue Harvest’s executive vice-president of Supply Chain and Operations.
The Harmony is one of eight Blue Harvest groundfish vessels currently active, alongside 15 scallopers.
