We are a voluntary group consisting of fishermen, scientists, local community leaders and citizens who share the same concern; the future of our commercial fishing industry and the communities closely and historically tied to fishing.
Historicaly, the commercial fishing industry has been the engine of the communities on the central coast of California. The sardines, squid, salmon, rock cod, sand dabs, sole, crab... and other fish had sustained thousands of jobs on our coast for most of the 20th century. Now we are facing very gray times in our industries and maybe even a less colorful future (hopefuly not).
We would like to provide the opportunity for anyone who would like to help our fishermen and we would also like to provide information about fishing, fishermen, boats and our communities. Our main goal is to educate the general public about the issues and challenges each of our fisheries faces. We would like to provide an open forum for those who are concerned about these issues and a real connection between the fishing community and the general public. We believe that if we get united we will be able to bring hope to our future generations of fishermen on our coast and in America.
Please support your local and other American fishermen and join us.
