A rare oceanic find that’s more often found in museum aquarium tanks than in local restaurants is on display for South Coast residents to admire in Charleston.
For those who don’t where Charleston is, it is located at the ocean entrance to Coos Bay. This distinctive fishing community is located near some of the finest recreation on the Oregon coast. According to the local chamber of commerce, it is the area’s “commercial and sport fishing center”, and the community also provides services for the seafood processing and marine support industries. Charleston is also the site of the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology and the United States Coast Guard Charleston Lifeboat Station.
