Know your fisherman: 16th generation Montauk fisherman, Captain Bruce Beckwith, alongside Charlie Etzel and Jeremy Gould.

Unique Cooperative Programme is Seeking to Raise USD 75,000 by the End of March

  (UNITED STATES, 3/21/2017)

Over the past five years Dock to Dish has worked on the coastal frontiers of the local food movement, creating new alternatives to old industrialized seafood supply chains while strengthening small-scale fishing communities in North and Central America.

Now operating in ports spanning from New York and California to Canada and Costa Rica, the place-based sourcing programs have blazed new trails toward the restoration of transparency and sustainability in the wild seafood marketplace and is using Kickstarter as a way to achieve this ambition.

Dock to Dish programs initiated the revival of (freedive) commercial spearfishing in Montauk.  Kickstarter pledge T-shirts say 'Know Your Fisherman' on the back. Dock to Dish lobster and crab fisherman, Captain John Aldridge.

Dock to Dish has identified that seafood fraud is happening everywhere: less than 1% of all seafood can be accurately tracked back to a fisherman and almost 50% of the seafood samples tested in recent studies were fraudulent. Furthermore, over 90% of the seafood consumed in the United States is imported.

The organisation points out that ongoing upheavals in the U.S. political system have made it impossible to rely on the federal government to protect the environment and the wild seafood supply, and that it is imperative to act now to create practical local solutions from the ground up.

By directly reconnecting these last remaining independent local fishermen to leading chefs and their communities through our unique cooperative programs, the destructive industrialized model for sourcing wild seafood from around the world can now be abandoned by all participating Dock to Dish members. 
 
"We are on a mission to fix the broken seafood supply system with our unique cooperative programs and the latest advances in technology. Today we invite you to join us on our journey to launch Dock to Dish 2.0 which will make precision traceability a reality, and catapult local seafood sourcing into the digital age", says Trevor Swope,  Dock to Dish Co-Founder.

Dock to Dish 2.0 will integrate a customized Fish Trax™ vessel data management platform with specially calibrated Pelagic Data Systems™ tracking devices (modified for delivery vehicles) to establish seamless traceability of fish from dock to dish.
 
Backing this project will lead to visible and permanent improvements in the market and help to ensure that honest, local, healthy wild seafood remains abundant and accessible now and for generations to come.
 
In 2016, Vanity Fair magazine ranked Dock to Dish one of the 25 most daring and intrepid organizations in America for driving the local food movement forward and "redefining the economy of the seas," as Grist named Dock to Dish among the top 50 innovators leading the country toward a more sustainable future

Year after year—in harbor town after harbor town—Dock to Dish continued making strong and steady progress in achieving its mission. The purpose of this campaign is to raise funds that will enable to take their efforts to the next level. 

In order to initiate the launch of Dock to Dish 2.0 and evolve their programs into the digital age, the organisation  must raise at least USD 75,000 which it will be uses to:

  • build a technologically advanced seafood tracking system
  • overhaul their website to provide a traceability dashboard
  • make upgrades to its refrigerated cargo carrying capacity

About Dock to Dish

Dock to Dish is a small mission-driven organization headquartered in Montauk, New York, that was founded in 2012 by community activists, commercial fishermen and sustainable seafood advocates. 

Dock to Dish's Members join up by subscribing for a “season” of local seafood, and in turn they receive a set weekly share of fish or shellfish that they have harvested personally. The organisation seeks to reconnect the coastal communities to their food system, encourage sustainable fishing practices, and strengthen relationships between fishermen and other communities.
