About the Harvester: On a lovely fall day in sunny southern California, I was pulling lobster gear with my husband. We were returning octopus, crabs, and various other species back into the water. I couldn't believe this seafood wasn't being enjoyed by our local communities. Being from Seattle, WA I grew up eating a large variety of really delicious seafood. Now living in Ventura, CA I found myself amazed at how disconnected the working waterfronts were with the millions of consumers just outside our harbors. Do they know how delightfully edible the seafood is right here in our Southern California local waters?
Since day one, a genuine love and passion for our catch and our own market patrons have defined who we are and what we do. We educate customers daily on the variety and uniqueness of what our local ocean has to share.
We're Fishergals, fishermen's wives, daughters, sisters, and friends. We have fifty plus years of seafood experience from these local waters. While some of us aren't on the water fishing day after day, we are the backbone of fishermen. We are stewards of our oceans, chefs of our kitchens, and teachers of the next generations.
