About Sea to Table

Sea to Table partners with local fishermen from small-scale sustainable wild fisheries, finding better markets for their catch. Delivering direct from the source, Sea to Table's transparent model creates a direct connection between fisherman and chef, supporting traditional fishing communities.

We became a B Corp in order to join the community of like-minded businesses on a mission to build sustainable supply chains, support local economies, and change our marketplace for the better.

The Change We Seek®

Too often, the path our seafood takes from the ocean to the plate is byzantine and opaque. Sea to Table bypasses the traditional distribution chain by providing a direct, transparent connection with fishermen. By directly connecting fishermen to the market, Sea to Table not only creates value for the chef, but value to fishermen, fisheries, and fishing cultures. Sea to Table is committed to only sourcing seafood that has been harvested in a responsible manner, but believes in supporting not only the fish, but also the fishermen. The mission is twofold: to get more people eating better fish, and in doing so preserving the working waterfronts and traditional fishing communities that depend on the resource.
