Carolyn and Ed Eastman are a husband and wife team that wanted to do something different in the commercial fishing industry. Carolyn's background is in education for 13 years. She has been an independent consultant for 8 years traveling nationally for the Department of Education. Ed's been a commercial fisherman for close to 25 years.
Putting the two backgrounds together, they began talking about how difficult it is to get local products out to local consumers. They also realized how little the general public knew about what was happening to the fishing industry. The Eastmans say, "Fisherman are not famous for speaking on their own behalf. They are hard working people that want to go fishing and make a living."
Eastman's Local Catch community supported fishery is a way for locals to have fresh local fish each week while also helping local fishermen get a better return on their best catch. The fish comes from the catch of a local boat and your weekly share could consist of a variety of haddock, cod, pollock, flounder, monkfish or ocean catfish. Your fish are cleaned, filleted and packed on ice at our market in Seabrook Beach and then go directly to your pickup location.
Eastman's Local Catch has closed for the winter and will re-open in April. Come back in March for information about the spring season.
