Zeke Grader, A Towering Figure in the Pacific Coast Fishing Scene
/ Zeke Grader, a hero to Pacifica Coast fishermen and to California’s environmental community, died yesterday after a battle with cancer. Grader was Executive Director of the Pacifica Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations and fought to save fish species and fishing as a way of life from Alaska to San Diego. He was highly regarded as an expert on water and fishing issues by colleagues and foes alike. Vic Bedoian reports from Fresno.
