About the Initiative

The Local Fish Initiative (LFI) supports San Diego fishermen to deliver their freshest catch to the community while providing key details around local species and harvest methods. LFI works with fishermen to shorten the supply chain, provide quality control and food safety standards, and facilitate regulatory compliance. LFI also helps raise awareness around sustainable local catch. These elements work together around one singular goal: to protect the state’s oceans while supporting a fully-transparent and viable fishing community for generations to come through facilitating better practices for every step along the supply chain.

Who we are

The Local Fish Initiative was created with a purpose: to narrow the divide between fishers and the community they serve.
