About the Network
The Local Catch Network (LCN) is made up of fishermen and women, researchers, technical assistance providers, and community-based organizations across North America that are committed to strengthening local- and regional seafood systems through community supported fisheries (CSFs) and other direct producer-to-consumer arrangements. We believe this work is critical for supporting healthy fisheries and the communities that depend on them. In pursuit of this work, we seek to increase the visibility and viability of small-scale fisheries and aim to provide assistance to individuals and organizations that need support envisioning, designing, and implementing locally-relevant businesses that work towards social, economic, and environmental sustainability. LCN is governed by a volunteer Executive Committee that is responsible for supporting the growth and development of the network. The network is based at the University of Maine with backbone support from the North American Marine Alliance. For more information, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
