Locals Catch Seafood Subscription

Calling all seafood lovers! Sign up for the Locals Catch Seafood Subscription 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 subscription 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 should I expect each week?

The Locals Catch is for those looking to increase their exposure to locally sourced seafood. Each week includes two offerings of NC fish and/or shellfish. We like to include crowd favorites, like Flounder, as well as lesser-known species, like White Grunt or Sheepshead. Don’t know how to cook something new? We send out a weekly pick up reminder with recipes and preparation tips so you can make the most of your meal. Most of the selections will be skin on fish fillets but can include shrimp, soft shell crabs or live shellfish (substitutions can be made for shellfish allergies). 

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


Amberjack, Black Drum, Bluefish, Clams, Cultivated Oysters, Flounder, Jumping Mullet, Pink Snapper, Shrimp, Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Yellowfin Tuna, White Grunt, Vermilion Snapper

What if I miss a pickup?

We encourage our Locals Catch members to find a friend to pick up if they can’t make it. If your subscription has not been picked up by the next day, we will freeze the fish selections for weekend pickup at your selected market. Live shellfish offerings will be forfeited.


“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!”
