History of the Golden Cod
Once, great fleets of vessels sailed from ports such as Marblehead, Gloucester and Boston to the Eastern most reaches of North America - the Grand Banks of Newfoundland – in search of cod. Massive catches of cod supported nearly 400 schooners in each of these ports, a multitude of shore-side businesses and a boat building industry that made the shipyards on the North Shore among the busiest and best known in the world. Displaying the golden cod on the facade of one’s home is an ode to Massachusetts and Marblehead's historical connection with the fishing industry. The golden cod is symbolic of what made the Massachusetts Bay Colony thrive and prosper.
