Why the South Carolina Seafood Alliance needs our support!
Today, buying local means more than ever before. Your choice makes a big difference in our Lowcountry community.
The mission of the South Carolina Seafood Alliance is to increase the production and consumption of fresh local seafood. The success of this mission will depend on the Alliance's ability to manage and prioritize its resources.
Initially, they must create a single, strong voice for the South Carolina seafood industry. This single unified voice will resonate with the government, regulators, media, and members of our community.
The object is to reach a critical mass of support from industry and concerned citizens that calls for recognition of the fact that 91% of all seafood consumed in the U. S. is imported, resulting in a $14 billion trade deficit.
In addition to creating a single, strong voice for the seafood industry, your financial support and membership in the Alliance provide you with access to information and influence over decisions that affect your ability to source fresh local seafood.
Pledge to #ShrimpLocal and show some love for our white boot heroes.
