Cutting Out the Red Tape is Always a Good Thing in Fishing and Investing

Pacific to Plate

As we have seen with the rise of local farmer’s markets, Californians want fresh, local food direct from the source. And they don’t just want their produce this way; they want their seafood direct from the hands that catch it too. In the past, we haven’t really had the opportunity to have fishermen’s markets here in California because of the way the state laws were set up. Fishermen’s markets were not defined in state law or regulatory code and not included in the definition of “food facilities.”

The definition of “food preparation” did not allow fishermen to clean freshly caught fish for direct sales to the public. California Retail Food Code required each individual fisherman to have proper permits to sell their catch to the public and markets were not even allowed to have an open front. Because of this, it has been nearly impossible to organize fishermen’s markets and most fishermen have been forced to work through middlemen who take a cut of the profits. However, in October Governor Jerry Brown signed State Assembly Bill 226, nicknamed Pacific to Plate, to rectify that.

Fish for Life November Trip

This time of year, we have a lot to be thankful for. Last Saturday, we joined Fish for Life to take advantage of some beautiful weather and share our passion of fishing with special needs children. Fish for Life is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of special needs kids by taking them fishing. The children learn fishing skills, teamwork, and about the ocean. There were even surprise guest animals, like a pony and a dog. Each child was awarded a trophy and we all enjoyed a great day on the water.
