Pier to Plate Events
On Memorial Day weekend, the Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen's Alliance will launch an exciting new program, Pier to Plate, aimed at creating demand for two types of "under-loved" fish. A dedicated group of 20 area restaurants, a fish market and a catering company will serve locally-caught dogfish and skate to their customers.
You can support local fishermen, sustainable fisheries and healthy oceans by asking for dogfish and skate at our partner restaurants all summer and by attending these exciting kick-off events that celebrate this new local fish movement:
