We are a network of community supported fisheries and small-scale harvesters.
LocalCatch.org is a community-of-practice made up of fisherman, organizers, researchers, and consumers from across North America that are committed to providing local, healthful, low-impact seafood via community supported fisheries and direct marketing arrangements in order to support healthy fisheries and the communities that depend on them.
How can you get seafood in the most direct way? These are some great options:
