Working on the Water: A Community Approach to Sustainable Waterfronts
Faced with a long term decline in fishing infrastructure, Walking Fish cooperative is developing a plan for an innovative working waterfront facility to meet the needs of small-scale fishermen in Carteret County, North Carolina. Working under a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant, Walking Fish has engaged in a collaborative process to identify community priorities and formulate a business strategy for the proposed facility. The fishermen of Walking Fish are excited for the opportunity to share their experience in integrating seafood into our local food system.
