Color silent amateur footage (1940's-early 1950's) taken by Terminal Island resident Ben Fukuzaki, primarily of the fishing industry in and around Fish Harbor, Terminal Island, and San Pedro, California.

This segment shows a fishing boat motoring out to sea; barrels on deck; fishermen at the rail; and views of a pod of dolphins breaking the surface of the ocean, and swimming before the boat's bow (00:33).
