NC GENERAL ASSEMBLY: Keep Local Seafood on NC Dinner Plates: Oppose NC House Bill 983
Bill 983 diminishes food sovereignty in North Carolina by restricting
the harvest of red drum, spotted sea trout, and striped bass to
recreational fishermen, reserving those nutritious food sources to less
than 3 percent of the state’s population. The bill would deprive
consumers of access to fresh, locally harvested fish by prohibiting
harvest by the commercial fishermen who bring those fish from sea to
shore for NC consumers. Gamefish designation for these 3 species, as
proposed in HB 983, is not a conservation measure. It is an allocation
of a public trust resource to a small, exclusive percentage of the
population. Red drum, spotted sea trout, and striped bass should be
available for the benefit and enjoyment of all North Carolina citizens.

Fresh North Carolina Fishery & East Coast Seafood
We provide Local Food/Whole Food/Sustainable Food from our golden supply chain (hey, it took us years to find the right brokers with seafood that met our high standards and it wasn't easy getting in their good graces. But we managed...mostly through bribes and the sale of our first born chirren!). By the way we have some not so local food also like Scottish salmon and Idaho rainbow trout because it’s so darn good. Actually better than good. Visit The Shrimp Connection open air seafood market in Summerfield, High Point, Lake Norman & Greensboro, North Carolina, for fresh seafood - shrimp, shellfish, & Atlantic coast fish.
Our shrimp, shellfish, Atlantic and Gulf coast fish are dressed and waiting for good ole Aunt Lulu's recipe or Emeril Lagasse’s' newest N'awlins preparation. You might even find some outstanding freshwater offerings! The quality is typically impeccable. To quote our customers: “excellordinary fish”, “amaziriffic scallops”,” outstonishing crawfish”, wondermendous shrimp” and on and on. We like to think of it as just radically fresh. Enough said. Tasting is believing. So come give us a taste test…that’s where we shine. The only thing you have to lose is your old benchmark on what quality seafood really is.
So Who Are We?
No easy answer but we do bill ourselves as seafood peddlers of fine distinction. I think this originated from the Aesop's fable :
A PEDDLER drove his Ass to the seashore to buy salt.
We have a guy we drive to the coast every Thursday but to negotiate for seafood! Similar. However even though we have cast ourselves in the long mercantile tradition of selling in an outdoor market we no longer travel like peddlers from place to place. Since we have fixed locations from which we can share our product and polished humor my guess is we have now been elevated to merchants. That’s the fine layer of American business which is being regulated out of existence. Nice. And we are there through rain, snow and dread of night…well really not the dread of night thing since we only operate during daylight hours but we’ve survived tornadoes intact. We’re tough. Or stupid. Or dedicated. Or a combination thereof. We choose this madness for a reason: it allows us to interact with our customers at a more personal level. More importantly we want the customer to check out the seafood up close and personal. Not just the quick token sniff that most groceries may or may not allow but we want our customers to see, feel and examine the color and beauty of the product. We just wouldn’t have it any other way the beauty of the great outdoors being what it is.
