Multi-generational fishing families continue to work in the waters off Morro Bay. Watch as local fishermen unload the catch of the day and then purchase this seafood in our fish markets, at the dock or prepared in any of these restaurants throughout town. It doesn’t get fresher than that!
Local aquaculture in Morro Bay centers around homegrown oysters. #OysterFarming began in the early 1900's and has been a part of its rich culture ever since. Today Morro Bay is known for cultivating two types of local oysters in the bay: Pacific Gold and Grassy Bar. Although both oysters call our bay home, the flavor profiles are quite distinct. Try homegrown Morro Bay oysters directly from the farmers or at a variety of local restaurants.
Take home local, wild caught, seafood by visiting one of our two fresh fish markets located right off the fishing docks. Local favorites include salmon during the summer months and Dungeness Crab over the holidays. Morro Bay is known for leading the way in #sustainablefishing practices along the Pacific Coast - so no matter what kind of local fish you enjoy, you can feel good about it.
