Sat. 3 Aug. 1-2 p.m. at the Officers Club

Learn about the Presidio’s archaeological process and excavations during this one-hour tour. See standing Spanish adobe in the Presidio Officers’ Club before moving to the state-of-the-art lab and collections facility where artifacts are cleaned, cataloged, studied, and curated. It’s a unique opportunity to see the behind-the-scenes workings of an archaeology lab and talk directly to the archaeologists. You can pack a picnic, catch a free shuttle and see some great stuff and million-dollar views of the Golden Gate.

Go early and take the 11:00 start time guided tours will surprise and inspire you with exclusive, behind the scenes Presidio stories. Hear about adobe walls; seafaring scientists; Buffalo Soldiers; Army nurses; Philippine-American War veterans; a secret Japanese language school; Vietnam-era dissenters and much, much more.

For more visit their web site and become a part of this wonderful, close by resource: https://www.presidio.gov/visit. Here you will find information on dates and times under the Events tab and a Maps tab will help you get oriented. The events are mostly free and is parking, that is free parking in San Francisco. 

Fri. the 26th Captain of the Bass Tub party boat reported limits of halibut for every fisher by 9 a.m. Pacific halibut is a different critter than the deep-sea halibut you buy in the store. The one you catch is amazingly fresh, some of the best eating in saltwater fish. Contact them on their web site: basstub@sbcglobal.net. They leave Fisherman’s Wharf at zero-dark-thirty.

Party boats for salmon are reporting an increase in the bite and anglers are landing bigger fish than back in June. 

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) lifted shellfish safety notifications today related to sport-harvested whole scallops and all clams in Sonoma, Marin, and Santa Barbara Counties.

The safety notifications were issued due to dangerous levels of naturally occurring paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) toxins that can cause illness or death. Recent testing shows PSP toxins have decreased to safe or undetectable levels.

The annual mussel quarantine remains in effect. The annual quarantine applies to all species of mussels harvested along the California coast, as well as all bays and estuaries, and will continue through at least October 31. 

The annual mussel quarantine remains in effect. The annual quarantine applies to all species of mussels harvested along the California coast, as well as all bays and estuaries, and will continue through at least October 

Theses warning do not apply to commercially sold clams, mussels, scallops or oysters from approved sources. State law permits only state-certified commercial shellfish harvesters or dealers to sell these products. Shellfish sold by certified harvesters and dealers are subject to frequent mandatory testing to monitor for toxins.

You can get the most current information on shellfish advisories and quarantines by calling CDPH’s toll-free Shellfish Information Line at (800) 553-4133. For additional information, please visit the CDPH Marine Biotoxin Monitoring web page.
