A long read but a fascinating one that covers the history of San Diego's fish industry, the tensions of development, and promising work to revitalize a fishing community that makes local, sustainable, traceable seafood available for consumers and restaurateurs. With any luck, the tourism interests will understand that a commercial fishing fleet is what will make San Diego stand apart from other waterfront shopping malls.

" . . . Protea Development’s $2 billion plan to make over the waterfront is expected to break ground in 2024. Called Seaport San Diego, the project envisions more public parks, open spaces, and new stores and restaurants where Seaport Village and the nearby Tuna Harbor Dockside Market currently stand on the marina.

According to the developer’s website, the plan includes 400,000 square feet of retail space, an aquarium, hotels, a veterans’ museum, and a 480-foot tower with an observation deck. Protea Development and the San Diego Fishermen’s Working Group signed a memo of understanding in late 2018 that Tuna Harbor will remain in the redevelopment plan, and that improvements will be made to the harbor to allow commercial fishing to thrive, such as a new processing plant and a bridge where visitors can watch fishing boats offload their catch. . ."
