2011The Gloucester Seafood Display Auction was sold.Economy and Industry, Maritime & Fishing Industry

The business was at the center of law enforcement excesses against the fishing industry when the owners went public in February 2009 after being hit with a 59-count allegation. It and eight other businesses received a public apology from then Commerce Secretary Gary Locke and NOAA administrator Jane Lubchenco and reparations for unfair fines. A special judicial master, employed by Locke, concluded that the decade of investigations had found no sign of a black market fish market or any other significant violations of federal law or regulations.
