Pacific Marine Expo, commonly referred to as “the fish expo”by mariners in the know is the largest commercial marine trade show on the West Coast, serving commercial mariners from Alaska to California. Mariners will find more than 450 exhibitors including equipment companies, propulsion manufacturers, builders and suppliers. Mariners will also find the fish expo to be an educational experience with education sessions on marine safety, business management, regulatory issues and technical advancements just to name a few. If you’re a hands on kind of person you are apt to find daily events including live demonstrations and the annual Fisherman of the Year Contest. Finally, what is a fish expo without End of day Happy Hours, nothing like free drinks to help fuel the conversation with vendors and colleagues where embellishment leads to bigger seas and larger fish.
