Timeline PhotosFrom our good friends at Water2Table Fish Co. — On Saturday May 23rd there was a massive fire at Pier 45, the heart of the San Francisco fishing community was decimated. Building C is a complete loss and has collapsed. Building C was the storage shed for our local commercial Crab fishing fleet. It is estimated that they lost over 5 million dollars in uninsured Crab Pots. Most fishermen had well over 100k in gear lost. They are basically finished and a lifetime of work has gone up in smoke. In order to get these guys fishing again when the season reopens in November they will need to start placing Crab pot orders immediately. As Bay Area residents we all understand the importance of the Dungeness Crab industry. These are small independent fishermen that are desperate right now and need our support. The funds raised here will ALL go towards replacing fishing gear for all those affected by the fire.
The kick in the gut for these guys is that most of them brought in their gear early due to Covid-19. If not for the lack of demand from restaurant closures their gear most likely would have still been in the water. - Joe Conte, owner

I mean no disrespect, but why didn’t they have insurance?
