Brookings, OR – Southwestern Oregon Community College Curry Campus invites the community to join us on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, 12 to 1 pm, ­to learn about Seafood Cycles on the South Coast.

Have you ever wondered about the different seasons of fishing on the south coast? How has the catch changed over the years? How does the seafood industry impact other parts of the coastal economy and lifestyle?

Join us when local fishermen, Bernie Lindley and Willie Goergen, will answer these questions and more. Bernie and Willie continue the family tradition of fishing out of the Port of Brookings, and both are good story tellers! Bernie has shared his crab fishing experiences on several Facebook posts. Willie owns Catalyst Restaurant in Harbor, well known for serving fresh caught crab and fish.

Our program is sponsored by the Friends of Curry Campus and will be held in the Community Room on Southwestern’s Curry Campus, 96082 Lone Ranch Parkway (off Highway 101), Brookings. Bring a friend and a brown bag lunch to this free event.

Stay tuned for more talks in our speaker series including discussions on tourism, the coastal economy, and a special event for all you ‘foodies’ out there. The Friends of Curry Campus Speaker Series takes place on the second Wednesday of every month, noon to 1 pm, during fall term.
