Local Catch: Spring

Each season, the Aquarium offers advice on local seafood availability. The following list highlights species in seafood markets and restaurants in spring. When dining out, ask if these or other choices are "Local Catch".

When choosing to dine on "Local Catch" you should remember that quality counts! You want to make sure that your seafood has no disagreeable odor and if it's live (blue crab) look for the movement of legs.

To find your local North Carolina seafood market, visit

This information is made possible by the NC Sea Grant, NC Department of Agriculture and the NC Aquariums.
Pocket-sized "Local Catch" guides are available at the Aquarium each season.

Happy dining!
