    I am looking for information on the first restaurants on the wharf. Were there Shacks near the water where fishermen sold their catch or cooked the catch before the larger restaurants were built. Is there any documentation on this facet of the wharf? Any information would be appreciated. Thanks. Marlene

    Does the Fisherman’s Wharf Historical Society have any interest in restoring an old drag boat formerly fishing out of San Francisco approximately 100 years ago? If so, then the International Fish Company’s International No. 3 is still afloat in Eureka. Contact me for further details. Thanks, Michael Machi
