Overview


San Diego has always attracted a rich diversity of immigrant groups. Between the 1880s and 1970s, many of these groups helped to create a strong and dynamic fishing industry that became a key component of the city's identity. Waves of varied immigrants continually refreshed the industry, adapting their traditional skills and technologies to San Diegan conditions. Innovations in boat design, nets, and baiting techniques reshaped the fleets that harvested tuna and sardines from the teeming waters. On shore, canning factories sprang up, seafood markets bustled with activity, and fish restaurants filled with hungry diners. The vivid stories and fascinating photographs in this volume recapture the energy and variety that were the hallmarks of San Diego's fishing industry--an industry that has left a deep multicultural imprint on today's city.

    San Diego's Fishing Industry

    I really enjoyed the book it brought back memories while I was growing up in San Diego's Little Italy. I would like to thank the Tarantino Family for entering my picture on page 87. I also appreciate that on the cover included the Boat that My Father Pete Principato (far left) who was part owner and skipper of the boat Anna. I hope if the book gets revised that my Fathers name will be entered. Thank you so much Kimber M. Quinney and Thomas J.Cesarini
