National Seafood Month

october is national seafood month

Join Ventura Harbor as we celebrate National Seafood Month! Although delicious seafood is celebrated all year long at Ventura Harbor, we are taking this particularly special time to highlight the Top 6 ways to celebrate and why!

The first reason to celebrate National Seafood Month is because of nutritional benefits that come along with eating fish. Along with being low in fat and cholesterol, it is also packed with omega 3s lean protein, vitamins A, D, and B, and mineral such as iron, iodine, and zinc. This means that there is a decreased risk of dying of a heart attack and lowered risk of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Secondly, locals and visitors are super fortunate to have an abundance of Fish Markets right here in the Ventura Harbor. Options range from daily fish markets like Wild Local Seafood who are founded on sustaibalbe fishing practices, to weekly markets from local fisherman selling right from the dock at Saturday Fisherman’s Market at Harbor Village.

Calling sportfishing enthusiasts of all ages! Nothing is better than being out on the open ocean and the thrill of bringing home your own fish to fry up! (plus bragging rights!) Ventura Harbor Sportfishing has a fleet of fishing vessels and they offer frequent trips out of Ventura Harbor.

Ventura Harbor prides itself on offering over 10 mouthwatering handcrafted clam chowder recipes at various different restaurants, plus a variety of cioppinos and hearty dishes to warm your inner core. Enjoy with a glass of wine, warm bread & stunning Harbor views! Yum!
