Unusual Catches Day

Saturday, March 2  1:00pm-4:00pm

New England’s fishermen harvest millions of pounds of seafood each year. Anyone who has fished for any length of time has a story about something unexpected that came up in the net. From bottles, pottery, and tools to bones, fossils and even bombs, objects are continuously pulled up from the deep.

On Unusual Catches Day, a team of maritime archeologists will be at the Center to examine unexpected items found in fishermen’s nets and dredges. Commercial fishermen are encouraged to bring in their found objects pulled up from the deep for analysis.

Stayed tuned for more special events in 2019!
