Geoff Bettencourt, owner of the fishing boat Moriah Lee, walks along Johnson Pier in Half Moon Bay, Calif., Tuesday, Feb. 12, 2013. Fleets of unused, weathered fishing boats, shuttered processing businesses and idle fishermen have been the image of California's once-thriving fishing towns over the past decade.
