Commercial Fishing Photo Of The Day | F/V Madre Dolorosa

The Alaskan salmon season is quickly approaching as boats prepare for the huge flood of pinks this year. The Madre Is looking good this year in Bellingham. I've always loved the name of the vessel. Loosely translated, it comes out to be the Mother Of All Destruction. At least, that's what I've heard over the years. Google translate pulls up “Sorowful Mother.” Either way it's a great name for a boat. Good luck to all the fishermen traveling north this season.

  1. My father, James Arthur White, perished when the Madre Dolorosa capsized on August 17, 1966.

    1. Hi there. Sorry, I have been in California squid fishing and I haven’t really been maintaining the blog. I can easily get you a copy of that photo
