Sea Rocket Bistro memorabilia

The famed cardboard-fish sculptures swim on to a new home

Sea Rocket Bistro closed Dec. 8, but some of the art inside the local seafood restaurant will live on.

According to Sea Rocket co-owner Dennis Stein, artist Matthew Mahoney's eye-catching fish sculptures made of recycled cardboard and Duct Tape, which were created for a North Park Nights event four years ago before being permanently installed on the restaurant's ceiling, were sent home with a few loyal patrons and friends of the restaurant. The rest of the fish will be installed inside Catalina Offshore Products, Sea Rocket's seafood distributor.

The interesting fish installation will be housed indefinitely inside Catalina, Stein says, the notably up-cycled materials serving to help remind viewers to eat local and sustainably harvested seafood.
