The Local Seafood Summit is a practitioner-centric event. It is for small- and mid-scale seafood harvesters and businesses who are interested in sharing experiential knowledge, learning strategies that make community supported fisheries and direct-marketing businesses successful, and collaborating to build a trustworthy, low-impact, domestic seafood supply system. The summit provides an opportunity for those interested in direct-marketing to learn from established businesses and connect directly with other resources in a network that supports good, clean, fair seafood.

  • Settle in with a cup of coffee (or something stronger) and check out the groundbreaking exposéHow Foreign Private Equity Hooked New England’s Fishing Industry. This report is not only validating to the fishing men and women who for decades warned decision makers of this inevitable result of privatization policies such as Catch Shares. But it is also providing a swell of momentum behind our national advocacy toward Catch Share reform and stopping the corporate takeover of the ocean. 

  • Our networks have been swimming with activity all year and there’s so much to look forward to.

  • "We can’t shorten the lines to food banks without addressing the economic structures that don't value people enough to provide for a living wage that ensures lives with dignity and enables us all to afford good food and pursue healthy lives. Our society isn’t designed to ensure the right the food. It’s high time we changed that if we are serious about ending hunger and good health.

    Please keep an eye out as together with our allies we will work to bring our points of views to this process and ensure that we strive toward truly ending hunger by addressing the root causes and not just treating its symptoms."
