The Portuguese Historical Center and others in the local fishing communities sponsored and funded this memorial, which was dedicated in October 1988. The Port of San Diego contributed the granite base and installation. The bronze sculpture weighs 9,000 pounds and stands 21-feet to the tip of the fishing pole. Its inscription reads: "Tunaman's Memorial Honoring those that built an industry and remembering those that departed this Harbor in the Sun and did not return. –Anthony Mascarenhas"
