Boston Massachusetts, a town in Suffolk County. The Boston Fish Pier, which opened in 1915, provides berthing space with shore-to-ship power for the region's fishermen, as well as seafood processing and office space in the East and West buildings.

The Massachusetts Port Authority is preserving this vital local industry, and maintaining a working waterfront that is significant to the state’s maritime heritage.
