Now in its 4th year, Fisherman’s Appreciation Dayhosted this year by Los Anglers – continues to teach local anglers safe fish consumption habits by teaching fishermen how to target safe fish to eat. Anglers of all ages started out their summer by coming out to the Venice Pier to participate in a fishing seminar, games and educational booths that support safe Southern California fishing, sustainable seafood, and the environment.

Highlights from this year’s event included a fishing contest, Larry Fukuhara’s informative fishing workshop, Wendy Tochihara of Rod and Reel Radio emceeing the event, face painting, and nearly $4,000 in prizes!

Take a look at what went on at the 2013 Fisherman’s Appreciation Day!
