Capt. Ryan Nolan’s grandfather fished for tuna and jigged for cod out of Wellfleet and called his boat Torsk — Swedish for cod. Nolan honored him in 2012 by rechristening, as Torsk, his newly purchased 37-foot fiberglass scalloper, built in 2001 by David MacDonald Boats Ltd. in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Before becoming his own skipper, Nolan fished on Sea Wolf and Sisters Five, among others. He told me in 2014 that he had begun lobstering, in addition to scalloping.
