North Carolina Catch
North Carolina Catch supports the work of the four local seafood promotion initiatives that stretch from Currituck County to Brunswick County. Carteret Catch, Ocracoke Fresh, Brunswick Catch, and Outer Banks Catch have emerged as the buoys and markers that guide consumers to local fish and shellfish sources. The groups help educate consumers on the culinary and nutritional rewards of choosing local seafood, as well as the economic, cultural, and ecological benefits for local communities and for the state. North Carolina Catch is a nonprofit umbrella organization that ties the work of the local groups together to foster collaboration, to strengthen communication, and to enhance a statewide and national presence. Jimmy Johnson serves as President of the N.C. Catch Board of Directors.
APNEP is providing support for the printing of NC Catch restaurant placemats. The placemats will educate people on the importance and benefits of the estuary as well as supporting locally caught seafood. The placemats will be distributed to restaurants throughout the APNEP region.
