    As with many pier areas, it was obvious there are many areas you should stay clear off. They built the pier so everyone would have a safe place to walk, stroll and fish. You need to stay off the break water ridges and this is because in the past, people who were fishing were washed off the break water ridges when the waves are high. No swimming allowed either.

    Warning~ That the consuption of Mussels are unfit for consumption & Clams may contain poison so to discard the dark parts and make sure you clean and wash them well before cooking.

    Protect your health~ Do not eat contaminated fish such as White Croaker, Barred Sand Bass, Black Croaker, Topsmetl, and Barracuda.

    Sadly this is an area homeless will try to find a place to sleep. They sleep during the day if they can, because it is too dangerous for them to sleep in these areas at night. So I don't blame them.

    Below is a great site to know which fish is safe to eat and some helpful tips & precautions.

    green water and shadow, San Pedro (Los Angeles)

    I'll say this until "blue in the face" (or in this case, until blue enters the port of LA-San Pedro)--- DO NOT SWIM IN SAN PEDRO!

    The official water sports activity area here is Cabrillo Beach. Go ahead and fish here, take a stroll, tan, have a picnic, and please do not--well, you know!! Cabrillo Beach is frequently jusged as a dirty beach area. This is naturally because of the pollution of the nearby port. Don't blame me if you get sick from the infamous, infested green water!

    Here's my shadow and the yucky green water

    Cabrillo Beach :
    3800 Stephen M. White Drive
    San Pedro, CA 90731
