About the Local Catch Network
Established in 2011, the Local Catch Network (LCN) is made up of fishing families, community-based organizations, researchers, and technical assistance providers who work to strengthen local and community-based seafood systems in North America. We are a hub for peer-to-peer learning, innovation, and research related to direct seafood marketing and small- and community-based fisheries. Our network includes more than 200 seafood businesses from across the United States, Canada, and Mexico. LCN is governed by a volunteer Executive Committee that is responsible for supporting the growth and development of the network. The network is based at the University of Maine with additional backbone support from the North American Marine Alliance.
