Keeping Afloat: Supporting Small, Local Commercial Fishermen

We thought this video was so special that we wanted to share it with our readers. Thanks to Liza de Guia, at Food Curated, who recorded and published it.

Phil Karlin, founder and commercial fisherman behind PE & DD Seafood in Riverhead, Long Island, NY, has a small, family-owned commercial fishing operation.

PE & DD Seafood is one of a handful of local seafood companies that sell their catch to customers at the NYC Greenmarkets, supplying a variety of fin fish, lobsters, shellfish and conch.

We agree with Liza; by supporting local fishermen, you can help keep these hard-working, small family-run fishing businesses alive and support a form or fishing that Phil believes does minimal damage to the environment.
