Terminal Island

A coalition of local fishing industry groups has donated more than 300,000 cans of mackerel to help feed hungry people in Ethiopia and other African nations.

Larry Bozanich, president of the San Pedro-based Fisherman's Cooperative Assn., said the fish will be distributed directly to refugee settlements by the Adventist Development Relief Agency, an arm of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The estimated retail value of the fish is $240,000, he said.

Bozanich said that besides cooperative members, others participating in the effort were Star-Kist Foods Inc., Pan Pacific Fisheries, Galletti Bros. Foods, the Fishermen's Union of America, and the Fishermen and Allied Workers Union, Local 33.
