China Camp

There are two markers on this monument

One of the earliest, largest and most productive Chinese fishing villages in California, China Camp was in operation by 1870. The Chinese immigrants and their descendants introduced the use of commercial netting to catch bay shrimp off Point San Pedro. The shrimp were then dried and exported to Chinese throughout the world. China Camp represents the last surviving Chinese shrimp fishing village in California.
One of many Chinese shrimp camps on the bay, this site was home to several thousand Chinese from 1880 to 1905. Left unemployed by the completion of the Pacific Railroads, driven from the city by restrictive laws, they joined those already shrimping in the bay. Changes in the fishery and new laws caused a rapid decline in population, until today Frank Quan is the only original resident still living here.
