Locals Catch Seafood Share

Calling all seafood lovers! Sign up for the Locals Catch Seafood Share to receive seasonal North Carolina seafood every week. Our program is a great way to explore the state’s seafood and save money. Each weekly share includes two selections of North Carolina seafood. These selections are usually a pound each, but some items are included by count rather than weight (oysters, soft shell crabs, etc.).

What’s in a share?

The Locals Catch is for the adventurous at heart. Each season includes a mix of NC fish and shellfish. We like to include crowd favorites, like Flounder, as well as lesser-known species, like Mullet. Don’t knock em ‘til you try em! And don’t worry – we’re happy to help you find recipes and preparation tips so you can make the most of your meal. Most of the fish selections will be skin on fillets but, we do occasionally feature whole (head on, scaled & gutted) fish on-the-bone.

The sample listings below will give you an idea of what to expect each season.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

“I appreciate the opportunity to introduce my family to new types of FRESH seafood while supporting NC fishermen, which is important to this Eastern NC transplant who still has many friends in the industry. I look forward to our future shares!”

“Fantastic! Thanks so much for organizing this weekly. We’ve had such a great time finding recipes and cooking together. My kids have even ventured beyond shrimp and flounder, so I consider it a complete success. Last night, we had bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp, and we boiled cubes of sheepshead in a crab boil and served it with drawn butter. Everything was delicious!”
