Wednesday marked the beginning of Lent, which includes the long-standing Catholic tradition of not eating meat on Fridays during the 40-day period.

It’s common for some to substitute meat with fish — particularly a fish and chips dinner.

If you happen to be looking for a place in the Brockton area to get your fish and chips this Lent season, we’ve done some of the work for you.
