Using models, photos, diagrams, nautical charts, and personal stories, this exhibit follows two hundred years of commercial fishing in Provincetown from the early years of the nineteenth century through today. Visitors will learn how methods of catching and preserving fish have changed, and the technological advances commercial fishing has made over the decades. The exhibit also aims to help illuminate the many reasons, natural and man-made, why the once voluminous Provincetown fishing fleet has now dwindled to just a handful of commercial boats.
