San Francisco's Seafood Scene

Why isn't there more seafood in the San Francisco Bay Area? Geography, history, or something else?

Other major port side cities have booming fish markets and access to lots of fresh seafood.
Why is this missing in San Francisco? Clams and oysters seem to be all we have. The only two reasons I can think of: not enough naturally occurring seafood in the nearby waters, or some historical / cultural preference for other cuisine. But I can't find any supporting evidence from a quick internet search.
Does anybody know?
