Fishermen selling catch to public right off their boats in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- 55 miles. That's how far Romer Tamayo drove Sunday morning just to buy some fish.

He wasn't alone. Dozens of people stood at Pier 47 to do something that hasn't been allowed in the city for 17 years.

Late last month, the Port of San Francisco began allowing fishermen to sell their catch directly to the public.

So far, Guiseppe Pennisi, owner of Pioneer Seafoods, is the only one permitted to sell fish from his boat.

He posts a calendar of the days he is selling fish from his boat on his website.
