Fresh. Local. Sustainable.
Captain Rich Cook has been a full-time commercial fisherman since 1980. Until a few years ago, he never imagined doing anything else. But when low wholesale seafood prices and rising fuel costs made it harder to make a living on the water, he was faced with a tough choice: either give up fishing – or find a way to make fishing pay more. His answer was The Local Catch. The Local Catch is a local seafood processor and wholesaler that markets local seafood to local consumers. The Local Catch strategy supports Rhode Island 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!
