Go fishing … off the shores of Huntington Beach
Beginning Tuesday morning, fishing for fish and shellfish off the Orange County coast from Seal Beach to San Onofre State Beach is permitted again. The shutdown was imposed on October 9 in response to an oil spill from an undersea pipeline from an oil rig off the coast of Huntington Beach.
It is now considered safe to eat the seafood along this part of the shore. For more information, visit socalspillresponse.com/fisheries-closure.
