After several years of collaboration, the Fisherman’s Tribute Committee, in partnership with the Port of Everett, installed a Fisherman's Tribute Statue on the Everett waterfront on June 23, 2011.
The Port’s contribution, in addition to staff support, is to construct a Fisherman’s Tribute Plaza to house the statue as part of its Marine Craftsman District. This phase of the project is currently underway as work crews are pouring concrete to create the plaza.
The plaza is located adjacent to Waterfront Center along the 12th Street Marina walkway. This plaza is designed to be a gathering place and a resting spot for marina visitors.
“For the past four years the Fisherman’s Tribute Committee has been keeping the memories of the Everett Fishing Industry alive through various activities and events,” said Barbara Piercey and Kay Zuanich, co-chairs of the Fisherman’s Tribute Committee. “This statue will keep memories alive forever.”
Statue Fabricator: Kevin Pettelle, an artist known for his work on Everett’s Mike Jordan statue and Seattle’s J.P. Patches statue
