Local fishermen aren’t the only ones who make their livelihood selling fish along the Seacoast. Here at the High Liner Foods in Portsmouth, 65 million pounds of frozen fish leave the assembly line each year.

On the plant floor, workers heft frozen slabs of ground fish from cardboard boxes. A machine slices them into 2x4s, then feeds them onto a conveyer belt.

This plant also makes breaded fish sticks, nuggets and patties for retail chains like Shaw’s and Costco.
