San Francisco, CA (December 10, 2019) –  The Golden State Salmon Association (GSSA) is partnering with the Sacramento International Sportsmens Expo (ISE) to put on a fundraising crab feed on the Saturday night of the ISE show, January 18 at 6:30 pm.  The dinner will occur walking distance across the parking lot from the main exhibit hall at the Clubhouse at Cal Expo’s racetrack.
 
The dinner will feature all the fresh crab you can eat, great appetizers, pasta, salad, dessert, some of California’s finest beers and wines and other culinary delights. A great raffle and an auction geared to fishermen and women and outdoor enthusiasts will raise money to support GSSA’s work to keep strong salmon populations in California.  We will raffle and auction fishing trips (both salt and freshwater), fishing rods, reels and other tackle, all manner of outdoor gear, vacation getaways, and lots of other items of interest to outdoorsmen and women. 
 

“We are happy to bring back our fundraising dinner to Sacramento especially with our friends at ISE,” commented GSSA president John McManus. “With the challenges to salmon we’re working to address, and our efforts to keep salmon fishing flourishing for both anglers and consumers, this dinner is important.”

Tickets are $75 for those buying before January 1 and $85 thereafter. Click here to purchase. Or go to www.goldenstatesalmon.org

The Golden Gate Salmon Association is a coalition of salmon advocates that includes commercial and recreational salmon fisherman, businesses, restaurants, a native tribe, environmentalists, elected officials, families and communities that rely on salmon. 

GGSA’s mission is to restore California salmon for their economic, recreational, commercial, environmental, cultural and health values.

Currently, California’s salmon industry is valued at $1.4 billion in economic activity annually in a regular season and about half that much in economic activity and jobs again in Oregon. The industry employs tens of thousands of people from Santa Barbara to northern Oregon. This is a huge economic bloc made up of commercial fishermen, recreational fishermen (fresh and salt water), fish processors, marinas, coastal communities, equipment manufacturers, the hotel and food industry, tribes, and the salmon fishing industry at large.
