Find out about a day in the life of two women who work in New Bedford’s seafood industry. Cassie Canastra (left) is Director of Operations for BASE Seafood Auction. Heather Haggerty (right) is the owner/operator of Big G Seafoods, a New Bedford based conch business. This program is part of the Center’s Women’s Work project, a year long exploration of women’s involvement in the fishing community. Women’s work is supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Marion, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, and Westport Cultural Councils, and a donation from the Women’s Fisheries Network.
