The Local Catch was founded in 2010 by Captain Richard Cook and his wife Ann. The Cooks were inspired by the philosophy that selling seafood locally improves our community’s relationship with the food we eat. We know Rhode Island seafood; where to catch it, when it’s in season, and how to keep it at its freshest from ocean-to-table. We market seafood we catch on our own boat as well as seafood caught by our fisherman friends. Our strategy supports New England fishermen, is better for the environment, and provides a fresher, tastier seafood product to our community.
