Mmmm, crab!

 

Approximately 300 varieties of fish and shellfish are native to California. In Ventura, rock crab, spider crab, mackerel, herring, halibut, sanddabs, bass, perch and a variety of sharks and rays can be caught off the Ventura Pier.

Ventura has been a prime spot for seafood since the Chumash first established their villages in the area,.  If you would like to pursue this ancient art, there are many books available at E. P. Foster Library to guide you.
