Checking out the fish on the dock, Woodley Island, Eureka.

People still shop and deliveries still bring the stuff they buy, but the pandemic has scrambled the supply chains for many products. Count seafood caught by fishing boats out of Eureka in that scramble.

The usual chain, hauling the catch ashore and selling it all to a wholesaler, broke. So now fishing operations are selling directly to consumers at the docks.

Cerise and Harrison Ibach own Oceana Hook & Line Seafood, and they've had to adjust to the new reality. They join us to describe what changes have meant to business.
