Open-air fish market coming to San Diego Bay

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - It may not be Fisherman's Wharf or Pike Place, but an open-air fish market of sorts is coming to San Diego next month.

The plan calls for fishing boats to tie-up at the Tuna Harbor Pier, near Seaport Village, on Saturdays beginning Aug. 2 and sell their fresh fish.

Permits have been issued for the market that are good for one year. The county Board of Supervisors plans to address how to help promote the market at its July 29 meeting.

"Seattle is famous for its Pike Place Fish Market," Supervisor Greg Cox said. "There's no reason San Diego, with its vibrant waterfront, busy fishing fleets and great year-round weather, can't have our own open air fish market."
