Supporting Small Scale Fisheries and Local Watermen through Storied Seafood

Always Ask Where The Seafood Came From    

Small Scale Fisheries are a sustainable way of harvesting seafood. These individual fishermen and women who work the water are local, self employed business owners. They harvest seasonal, native fish & shellfish. The product they offer is ethically sourced with the sustainability of the fishery in mind. Local watermen handle their harvest carefully and with pride to ensure the highest quality seafood they can deliver.


Raising awareness of Small Scale Fisheries and local Watermen through Storied Seafood is crucial to sustainable fisheries.

“Always Ask Where The Seafood Came From”

Knowing where the seafood came from creates the story. This allows you to make better informed choices about your seafood.

Storied Seafood is more than just a phrase. We're passionate about local seafood sourced from small scale fisheries and the impact it has on our environment and local communities. We work to promote small-scale fisheries that prioritize sustainable fishing practices, ensuring that the seafood is not only delicious but also responsibly sourced. Asking where the seafood comes from  makes a positive impact and supports local, ethical small businesses.

Boat-to-Plate traceability is the result of Storied Seafood, allowing you to make a healthy, sustainable choice in your seafood. This kind of support encourages direct relationships between Working Watermen, restaurants, retailers, and the consumer to bring locally sourced seafood to your table.

Being aware of where your seafood comes from supports small scale fisheries that coastal communities and families have counted on for generations.

The best way we can support local working watermen is to start asking about seafood. Ask your server or retailer where the seafood came from. The next time someone mentions seafood, ask them if they know where it came from. Wearing Death Fish Coastal Wear designs can help start the conversation. This is the beginning of the story for “Storied Seafood”.
