The Fish Tree

A San Diego public art sculpture to depict the city's rich tuna industry. I didn't know this before, but San Diego was at one-time the tuna capital of the world.


Happy Friday,
Karen

I remember watching the tuna boats come into fisherman's wharf as a kid with my grandparents. The stench was awful but it was always exciting to watch the crews work. Then we'd go for fish and chips. Where they used to come in is where Sea Port Village now stands.

Thanks all for your comments.

@rainfield61: I've never used the fish bone cause & effect problem solving diagram before. I had totally forgot about its existence until you mentioned it.

@pussreboots: Thanks for the history of San Diego's tuna boats. In fact, the sculpture is in Seaport Village!
