“Here in Montauk, New York, we have fundamentally redefined the seafood marketplace by successfully pioneering an entirely new membership-based, supply-driven economic model for sourcing and distributing wild-harvest fish and shellfish.
Known as the “Dock to Dish” method, our new model and philosophy have expanded nationally over the last four years; and is now being replicated rapidly in fishing ports across North and Central America while being embraced by many industry leaders and advocacy groups as the new face of sustainable seafood.
Regional ocean planning will play an integral part in the continued success and proliferation of the Dock to Dish model, but will only succeed if commercial fishers are included in the regulatory process and have a seat at the table. We applaud [the planning work] for continuing to keep commercial fishermen at the table, and believe that real collaboration is the key to the future of protecting our oceans — and the people who depend on them — for many generations to come.”
