Carteret Catch connects local commercial fishermen with area restaurants and fish markets to promote sustainable, traceable seafood. What began with a rural grant through Carteret Community College has evolved to inspire similar programs in the state (NC Catch) and around the globe (Queensland Catch). When you see the Carteret Catch logo at a member business – on a door, a menu or a sign – you know that they are serving or offering at least one local, seasonal seafood item, and it’s sure to be delicious!
While more than 80% of our country’s seafood is imported, programs like Carteret Catch are challenging the status quo and connecting you with “the reel deal.” Can’t wait to dive into your next Crystal Coast meal? Be sure to ask, “What’s the Carteret Catch of the day?”
