Name That Fish!

When you are out on the piers, it is important to identify the fish you catch; now, we are making it fun by turning it into a contest! If you’re one who enjoys fishing off the beautiful Southern California coast between the Santa Monica and Seal Beach piers, it’s important to be able to identify the differences between healthy fish to eat and the local contaminated fish. Check out our “Name that Fish” slideshow below and test yourself to see if you can identify and differentiate between the healthy fish to eat and the do not consume fish!

Correctly identify each fish in the slide show (1 through 6) by answering in the comment section below by July 27th. Those who answer correctly will be entered in a drawing to win a Day Fishing Trip for 2 courtesy of LA Harbor Sportfishing! The winner will be announced on July 28th.

If you’re looking to catch some helpful hints, check out our useful resources on our YouTube channel, Healthy Fish to Eat page and Southern California Fish Consumption Advisory page!
