    As a coastal specialist with Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Theresa Talley wondered why it was so hard to buy the sort of fresh caught seafood she enjoyed as a child.

    A new law is making it easier for fishermen to continue sharing their catch around the state. AB226 allows fishermen's markets to operate just like hundreds of California certified farmers markets.
    "People are also going to get to know fisherman and the fishing families. They will be able to come down to the market and find out first hand where your fish came from, who caught it, where did it come from and tips on how to prepare it," said Theresa Sinicrope Talley, California Sea Grant.
