Who we are
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 goal of Core Sound Seafood 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 the states diverse agricultural offerings, and including them as producers in the local food shed is vital.
