Over 120 people graced the Venice Pier for educational workshops, free food, games and of course great prizes! During the fun-filled afternoon, FCEC was able to reach a substantial number of anglers (and kids!) about fish contamination issues along the Palos Verdes Shelf.
With the help of veteran fisherman Larry Fukuhara from Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, FCEC addressed better fishing practices, such as how to tie fishing line to target certain fish and which fish to release.
This unique community outreach experience was our way of saying thank you to all those who make our work so meaningful. Thank you also to our partners who made the day possible: Seafood for the Future, Montrose Settlements Restoration Program, Heal the Bay, Cabrillo Marine Aquarium, James’ Beach Restaurant and Sidewalk Café.
It was also a great way to have a little fun in the Southern California sun while talking fish! Check out pictures from the event in our Facebook Fisherman Appreciation Day photo album. Do you have pictures from the event? Share them on our wall.
