UNH Cooperative Extension and NH Sea Grant Help Local Fishing Families

Check out this video which profiles efforts at UNH to help small fishing businesses access local markets.  Finding ways to market their fish locally is providing additional income to fishing families that are fishing sustainably off the NH Coast.   This income is absolutely necessary for the survival of New Hampshire's small, family-run fishing vessels who are struggling to survive under management designed to support sustainable fish populations.  Buying local seafood: 1) gives you fresh, healthy fish, 2) supports sustainable fish populations and 3) supports fishing families in your community.  Win, win, win!
