Based out of Natick, MA, Fishaye Trading Company prepares wall art and various home goods that feature a unique art form known as Gyotaku. John F. Doherty, the artist and owner, puts his love of fishing to use as you’ve never seen before.

“It was perfect!”
As time passed, the artist found himself printing his self-caught fish onto products such as canvases, bowls, placemats, trays, and more to sell to his community and retailers, including here at Port Plums.
FishAye was one of the first company's carried at our store when we first opened, and the products continue to be well loved and admired by
our customers and staff alike.
“If I caught a fish at night, I could use the character for ‘moon’.
Or, if the fish put up a really good fight, maybe I use ‘spirit.’”
The care behind each print make you appreciate the work just as much, which is why we’re proud to offer Doherty’s artwork here in-store and online!
Whether it be for a friend, loved one, or even yourself, the exclusive artwork makes a meaningful gift for those who truly appreciate coastal living.
Come by our store and see his selection of trays and placemats for yourself!
