Herring sale returns to Steveston this weekend

Organized by charity Fishermen Helping Kids with Cancer, the 12th annual herring sale will take place at Steveston Harbour Authority on Trites Road on Saturday, January 21 from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Later this week, a few herring seiners will be fishing north of Nanaimo and, depending on the weather, they hope to catch 50 tons of tasty herring for thousands of customers in Steveston and at the other sale in Victoria Since 2011, commercial fishing industry has raised close to $1 million for kids being treated for cancer at BC Children’s Hospital. Fishermen and key fish companies cover all costs of the event so 100 per cent of the funds raised at the sale go to the kids. >click to read< 17:56
