I'm a well-known Bay Area fishmonger and chef specializing in local seafood cuisine. I have an extensive knowledge of locally harvested seafood and sustainable fishing practices. Surfing and fishing California waters my entire life has forged my respect for ocean wildlife and strictly guides my decisions about what seafood is sensible to put on your plate.

Chopping it up about sustainable fishing practices with fishmonger Don while enjoying a sample of the morning’s catch for breakfast was a wonderful way to start the day! Highly recommend this experience for SF locals and visitors alike.

This was a highlight for us on our trip to San Fransisco. It was great for our jet lag on our first day too. A great way to see that area and a unique experience. Don was brilliant and gave us an in depth insights into the fishing there. The seafood and fish was AMAZING!!! Seriously that salmon we had - THE BEST SALMON SASHIMI we have ever had - even better than what we had in Tokyo Tsukiji market!! Thanks Don for a wonderful experience. I definitely recommend this experience👍🏻👍🏻

Wow - learned so much about the fishing industry both in San Francisco and the world at large. Made me think hard about what fish I'm eating and gave me information to do so effectively. And it was FUN and DELICIOUS.

Don is extremely generous with his time and knowledge. He'll answer anything you ask. We also ate a huge amount of great, raw fish, as part of the tour, and that was unexpected.

Don's Fishmonger tour is an amazing behind-the-scenes look at the history and industry of Fisherman's Wharf! I learned so much about the evolution of fishing practices, regulation, and sustainability, and had some delicious seafood to boot. Don is super patient with answering questions. It's a great way to learn more about how fish get from the sea/farms onto your table, both at home and in restaurants, and a great step towards becoming a more conscious consumer!

As a local from San Francisco, I try my very best to avoid this area. However Don’s insider access into the market and knowledge of fish in our food chain is really fascinating. I loved this tour and would highly recommend it. If you’re a foodie this is a MUST.
