Community members in Bodega banded together to help provide struggling crab fishermen with necessities as thousands of crab traps sit idle after the department of public health banned fishing for the popular crustaceans.
“It’s just devastating right now, very devastating. It’s a great gesture,” Bodega Fisherman Tony Anello said.
People in the community were worried about their fishermen, so some residents pooled their money to buy 100 Safeway gift cards for those needing food. The cards were worth $100 each.
