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 at sea; fishermen deploy seine nets from the stern of the moving boat; and fishermen retrieve their nets (00:38).
