On this episode, I head to the docks to interview two of our local commercial fishermen. I was accompanied by my trusty companion Scott Higby, owner of Studio C Creative Sound Recorders.
Co host Trish Watlington stayed home enjoying spending time with her new grand baby (Go Grandma!) She will be joining us again next time.
When we arrived Captain John Glawson, owner of Nicole Ann and Captain Dan Major owner of Plan B were busy preparing their lobster pots for the beginning of spiny lobster season that starts on Weds October 7th for commercial fishermen.
They were kind enough to take a break from their task to sit down for a chat. Cap'n Dans wife Kelli joined us. We talked about trade tariffs, the pandemic, a changing environment and how these, and many other factors are changing the food systems we have known. We spoke of how the support of the local community is of paramount importance to maintain the availability of local food sources. 
Captain Dan & John gave us insight to the life of a lobster fishermen out on the ocean waves. How they got into commercial fishing, how they lay the traps, what it’s like hauling a 65lb lobster pot up from the briny. It was an enlightening conversation. The life of a fisherman is not for the feint of heart.
Starting at 8am on October 11, San Diego Spiny Lobsterfest will be happening at Tuna Harbor Dockside Market, 598 Harbor Ln, San Diego, CA 92101 
Local lobster fishermen will be selling live spiny lobsters. Chef Phillip Esteban and Chef Marcus Twilegar of Craft Meals will be serving up some amazing spiny lobster dishes. There will be some prepared grab and go meals for sale.
Public health & distancing protocols will be strictly enforced, so bring a cooler and a mask.
