Local Seafood Summit

2022 Summit

We will be announcing the date and location for our next Local Seafood Summit soon!

About the Summit

The Local Seafood Summit is a practitioner-centric event. It is for small- and mid-scale seafood harvesters and businesses who are interested in sharing experiential knowledge, learning strategies that make community supported fisheries and direct-marketing businesses successful, and collaborating to build a trustworthy, low-impact, domestic seafood supply system. The summit provides an opportunity for those interested in direct-marketing to learn from established businesses and connect directly with other resources in a network that supports good, clean, fair seafood.

Additionally, a primary goal of the summit is to foster relationships between the seafood industry and the support sectors that are critical to the transition toward socio-ecologically responsible, values-based seafood systems. Therefore, the summit is not limited to fishermen and seafood businesses. Through this gathering, we hope to expand the support structure for North America’s small-scale seafood businesses while bringing new and non-traditional partners to the table, providing fresh energy and innovative ideas. We welcome chefs and restaurateurs, entrepreneurs, the media, and others interested in contributing to the Local Catch Network.
