Re: Would you eat fish from marina del rey breakwall?

Personally, I would not....it is too close to outfalls dumping pollutants from inland L.A. Lots of bacteria and chemicals from dog waste, lawn spraying, fertilizers, illegal drug manufacturing, prescription drug disposal, human bathing, etc., and heavy metals from industrial waste getting dumped illegally down drains, would make it counter productive. Tests of resident fish off the RPV area have found many with heavy metals in their tissue. The only exception I would make would be migratory fish such as, white sea bass, yellowtail and halibut....For the same reasons, I won't eat lobster, scallops and mussels from the Long Beach breakwall….

But, like Al Schneppershoff used to tell me, "Who cares, what does it matter...we are all going to die anyway"...……...
