Core Sound Seafood was started as a way to connect the fishermen of Down East Carteret County, North Carolina to a viable, local market.
Most of the fishermen that make up this coastal community have been fishing all their lives - often they can trace their fishing heritage back four or five generations.
Sadly, these fishermen are increasingly leaving their life on the water as global markets, community economic loss, rising fuel prices and decreasing buying prices threaten their livelihood.
The Core Sound Seafood's goal is to provide a market to these fishermen and their families by offering locally caught, fresh seafood to the Chapel Hill, Carrboro community through a weekly CSF (community supported fishery) share.
They believe that North Carolina fishermen are a tremendous resource in our state's diverse agricultural offerings, and including them as producers in our local food shed is vital.
Types of Seafood Available:
The CSF strives to include a diverse range of seafood with the composition of each week's portion varying depending on seasonal availability and weather conditions. Members can expect to receive such species as Blue Fish, Black Drum, Black Sea Bass, Clams, Soft-Shell Crabs, Blue Crabs, Croaker, Flounder, Grey Trout, Grouper, Hog Fish, Jumping Mullet, Mahi Mahi, Oysters, Red Fish, Sea Mullet, Sea Scallops, Sheephead, Shrimp, Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Spot, Trigger Fish. Most seafood supplied will be caught within Core Sound, when available some fish will be caught off shore out of the sound, though always locally.
Typically, each weekly share will have two types of seafood in it.
