Fishermen’s Terminal, Seattle

Fishermen’s Terminal is located on Salmon Bay in the Interbay neighborhood in Seattle, Washington, east of the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks and immediately west of the Ballard Bridge (seen in the background of the image above).  Operated by the Port of Seattle, it is home to the Pacific North West fishing fleet including some of the vessels that are on the Discovery Channel show the Deadliest Catch.

The facility provides freshwater mooring for fishing vessels, and since 2001 pleasure craft.  A documentary film Fishermen’s Terminal centers on the conflict between the moorage needs of the fishing fleet and pleasure boaters.  Four years in the making, Fishermen’s Terminal tells the story of the commercial fishermen and their supporters who took on the Port and shined a spotlight on the public agency that controls most of Seattle’s waterfront.

Fishermen’s Terminal can accommodate vessels up to 250 feet (76.2 m). Preference, though, is given to commercial fishing vessels.  It serves more than 600 vessels.

As with any harbor the photographic options here are limited only by one’s imagination.  From the all encompassing group shots of the first image, the single boat ‘portrait’ as seen in the middle shot, and the many detail extract shots that are there for the taking, Fisherman’s terminal offers everything a photographer could wish for.
