Bait Barge Operator Tapped at Port of LA

Thursday, April 12, 2007
The Los Angeles Board of Harbor Commissioners has awarded a five-year contract to San Pedro Bait Company, Inc. to supply live bait in the Port of Los Angeles. The new bait barge operator will be located in the Port’s Outer Harbor, near Cabrillo Marina, and will supply live bait to the active sport fishing industry and to recreational fishers. The contract award comes after the two prior long-term live bait suppliers at the Port of Los Angeles were found to have operating conditions that presented environmental hazards. The previous barges were removed from service at the Port in November 2006 and February 2007. A Request for Proposals was issued on January 24, 2007, and San Pedro Bait Company was selected by demonstrating the greatest commitment to environmental stewardship.
