Local Seafood When Shopping for Necessities

Apr 1, 2020

Some South Carolina fishing boats remain in operation, and their products are available at several retail seafood outlets remaining open as essential businesses during the COVID-19 outbreak.

So if you’re venturing out for essentials, consider supporting local seafood. Many are offering curbside or dockside pickup or allowing only one person in their stores at a time. Softshell crabs are in season for the locations that sell that specialty.

S.C. Sea Grant Consortium is not endorsing these specific businesses, but it is part of our mission to enhance a sustainable economy and environment. This information is being updated on a weekly basis. While we do our best to keep the information up-to-date, please call ahead for most recent changes and product availability.​
