Local Catch

North Carolina harvests some of the finest fish and shellfish available anywhere in the world. Our fish stocks are disappearing because they have been over fished or harvested using damaging fishing practices. To keep our favorite seafood plentiful for us to enjoy and to keep it around for future generations, we must act now.

As a shopper, you have the power to turn the tide. When you purchase seafood that's in season and from fisheries using ocean-friendly methods, you reward their actions and encourage others to act and operate responsibly.

The NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher, in partnership with NC Seafood and Sea Grant of NC has produced seafood availability cards to provide you with seasonal choices for winter, fall, summer, and spring. Pick up your copy at the Aquarium during your next visit.
