Squid Catch off Humboldt Coastline

El Nino Currents along the Northern California Coastline brought Squid into northern waters.  A moderate number of top flight fishing boats made their way to the waters off of Humboldt Bay to catch the fish during the limited squid fishing season.   Our photo essay begins with the fully laden LUCKY STAR coming into the Humboldt Bay Fisherman’s Terminal at  Wild Planet Foods  and follows the offloading, weighing, handling and ice packing process, as well as loading into refrigeration trailers for transport for additional processing.

Over the course of nine days more than 2.4 million pounds have been caught, moved across the Fisherman’s Terminal and delivered into the marketplace providing high quality seafood to people throughout the world.
