It's an important time to not only support local businesses, but also buy local Monterey Bay seafood. Buying locally-caught seafood when it’s in season supports Monterey Bay fishermen and women, keeps your dollars local, and strengthens our local food system.

The Monterey Bay Fisheries Trust has created a website with guides to local seafood seasonality, where you can find local seafood and introduces consumers to the local fishing community. Make sure you always #AskforLocal!
