Local Seafood List

“There’s plenty of fish in the sea, it’s just not the fish you’re used to eating.”

One of the few positives to emerge from the pandemic, and even climate change, is the emphasis on and increase in the power of local food and community connections. When supply chains broke down during the pandemic there was still a steady supply of delicious seafood being harvested by fishermen and shellfishermen across the Cape. That harvest continues and along with the myriad health and economic benefits eating local seafood provides, it also reduces our carbon footprint and builds resilient coastal communities.

You can help support local fishermen by purchasing seafood directly from permitted fishermen at the dock or from local fish markets and restaurants.  If a fish market doesn’t have the local fish  you’re looking for, be sure to ask – they can likely get it for you!

Watch this video from Division of Marine Fisheries to understand the importance of your seafood purchase and how direct sales to the public work.

Pier to Plate

In 2017 the Fishermen’s Alliance launched Pier to Plate, a program that aimed to create consumer demand for skate and dogfish on Cape Cod. Local small-boat fishermen sustainably catch “under-loved” dogfish and skate in abundance right off our shores, but 99 percent of this plentiful, white fish is shipped overseas to restaurants in Europe and Asia.

From May through October of 2017, Pier to Plate  drove awareness and generated demand for locally caught dogfish and skate. The program provided 4,010 pounds of dogfish and 5,600 pounds of skate to over 40 participating food establishments, local events and samples for institutional sales. The program was significant enough to be featured in 68 media outlets – 11 national, 29 regional and 28 local.

Although the Pier to Plate program for dogfish and skate has ended, we have remained committed to working with fishermen members to create opportunities for direct sales at farmers markets and with local businesses to help them access local seafood of any kind. We’ve also worked with companies like Whole Foods to ensure that high quality, sustainable, locally caught species are available to consumers.
