About The Local Catch, Inc.

The Local Catch was founded in 2010 by Captain Richard Cook and his wife Ann. The Cooks were inspired by the philosophy that selling seafood locally improves our community's relationship with the food we eat.

At The Local Catch, our top priority is quality. Rich, who has been fishing for over 30 years, knows Rhode Island seafood; where to catch it, when it’s in season, and how to keep it at its freshest from ocean-to-table. We market seafood we catch on our own boat, the F/V Sandra Lynn, as well as seafood caught by our fisherman friends.

The Local Catch is a local seafood processor and wholesaler that markets local seafood to local consumers. The Local Catch strategy supports New England fishermen, is better for the environment, and provides a fresher, tastier seafood product to our community.

When you purchase seafood from The Local Catch, you...

  • help your local commercial fishermen stay in business
  • reduce the carbon footprint of the seafood you consume
  • obtain the highest quality seafood available
  • enjoy one of the biggest perks of being a New Englander: the world-famous seafood off our shores!
