More Boat to Table Offerings with our New East Coast Fisherman Partnerships

As mentioned in our last newsletter, Seattle Fish is focused on a new specialty item program that passes along transparency of fishing vessel, captain, port, and fishing method for some of our new and specialty items.  To expand this initiative we have partnered with Open Ocean Trading.  Open Ocean connects distributors directly with day boat fisherman with transparent and traceable products at more stabilized pricing. Seattle Fish Co. will begin buying fish from The New England Small Boat Ground fishery sectors, which extend from Down East Maine to Rhode Island.  This partnership will allow SFC to offer a variety of East Coast seafood directly from the fisherman on the coast to the tables of Colorado, all while supporting the New England Fishery with the stability it needs to enable fishermen to continue to fish profitably and sustainably. Contact your Seattle Fish rep for details on our first shipment coming in this week from the day boats of The South Shore Northeast Fisher Sector 10 (from South Boston to the Cape Cod Canal)…think plaice, yellowtail flounder and market cod!
