In 1953, the Fishing industry was still going strong in San Pedro and on Terminal Island. LA Harbor was home to the largest fishing industry in the United States. Once a year a wonderful Fisherman's Fiesta was held and the San Pedro Fishing Fleet was blessed. His Eminence, James Francis Cardinal McIntyre performed the blessing in 1953 before a great crowd. Today the fleet down to less than a few dozen boats. None of the over 15 canneries that once occupied San Pedro and Terminal Island are left. The last closed in 2001. And now, the Fisherman's Fiesta is just a memory.

In San Pedro, a small tenacious fleet of commercial fishing vessels still exists. The gallery below is tribute to the glory days of the past.
