Peter Mullen’s new multimillion dollar vessel the Western Venture, which the city has never seen the likes of before, arrived in Gloucester last week and should put Mullen in the driver’s seat for the Gulf of Maine herring fishery next summer.
At an impressive 164-by-40-by-14 feet, the Western Venture is a European design combination of mid-water trawler/purse from which fishermen will be allowed to pull out 50,000 metric tons of food and bait fish for the 2007-2008 fishing year.
