Established in 2011, NC Catch, in partnership with the state's local Catch groups, strengthens the North Carolina seafood economy through promotion and education.
We work to educate consumers on the importance of buying local seafood and how to:
- support a robust seafood economy and culture
- promote commercial fishing as a sustainable profession deeply rooted in North Carolina heritage and deeply linked to the future
- support seafood industry economic opportunities and job growth
- identify, prepare and store seafood.
