“We know that quit a few people enjoyed fish before Maria and they have not had fish a lot of fish or much fish or any fish at all. In some cases as a result of the storm so we are providing them with some fish today, so we have about 500 pounds of fish as first come first serve,” he said.

On the menu is tuna, marlin, dolphin, kawang, and others for anyone who wishes to have a meal served a potato side dish.
