The San Mateo County Harbor District’s very own Deputy Harbor Master Cary Smith talks with Anne LeClair about the fresh fish coming in from Pillar Point Harbor on As Fresh as it Gets (www.freshasitgets.com), airing August 25 at 5:30 p.m. Smith, “always appreciates the opportunity to get the word out about the fresh products that come from the ocean to your table.” And it shows! LeClair chats with Harbor Master Smith about the local salmon and Dungeness crab seasons at Smith’s “small city” the rest of us call Pillar Point Harbor.
“It’s our pleasure to work with the San Mateo County Harbor District on our As Fresh as it Gets efforts. We want people to know about our amazing fishermen and the incredible Harbor team,” LeClair exclaims with her infectious enthusiasm. “Interviewing Cary Smith was a way to help educate San Mateo County residents on the importance of buying fresh, local seafood. The segment also offers a glimpse into the endless jobs performed by the Harbor team”. Stop by Pillar Point Harbor to pick up some of the freshest seafood in the world or find out what is being sold straight off the boats by visiting www.fishlineapp.com or by calling (650) 726-5727 and choosing option #3.
