Commercial Fishermen’s Festival
Astoria Sunday Market provided a grant of $10,800 to support the Commercial Fishermen’s Festival for 2010. The Festival is now in the hands of commercial fishermen who are establishing a non-profit organization whose mission is dedicated to educating the public about the fishing industry including the steps fishermen have taken to ensure a renewable resource for the future.

Owners David & Danene Lethin graciously donated the use of their Bering Sea crab boat for two tours — one in January and the second in October 2009. Their crew also donated their time. Special thanks to Alan Braun (Kiwi), Troy Hules (The Chief), and Danny Keiser. Their fishing vessel, The Aleutian Ballad, was seen on season two of Discovery Channel’s popular TV show, The Deadliest Catch. They own and operate The Bering Sea Crab Fishermen’s Tour in Ketchikan, Alaska, with The Aleutian Ballad, so this Columbia River tour is a special treat.
