Cod fishery history

Delivered recently to the Port of Anacortes via the Internet was a collection of photographs including this one of a fisherman operating from an unidentified schooner. The photos, without detail, were submitted by 69-year-old Magne Hungnes, who wrote in part: “I’m a Norwegian, retired from sea by seven years. From my uncle’s possessions I got through my cousin some pictures from way back in 1925.” Several of his photos included the Fanny Dutard, a three-masted schooner assigned to the Bering Sea cod fishery by Anacortes businessman J.A. Matheson. A lone detail about this photo is that the engine is an Evinrude.

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
