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.

hdr-consumers

When consumers buy directly from the source, they gain access to fresh, healthful, ultra high quality seafood and know how, where, and from whom it was harvested.

hdr-fishermen

Fishermen benefit from selling directly to consumers and institutional buyers because they make more for their catch and can forge relationships with seafood-loving consumers.

hdr-fisheries

Direct marketing provides a platform for fishermen and consumers alike to engage in a dialog about community, fisheries, and marine stewardship.
