6969893016_0a7cafc7d8_zSupport the local fishing industry and expand your seafood awareness when you participate in our NantucketGrown Local Catch Campaign this July! Each week a number of NantucketGrown restaurants will feature an under-utilized fish on their menu. These are fish that taste good, are plentiful in our waters, and when you order these instead of less sustainable fish populations, you are helping to promote both healthy fish populations and the fishermen that harvest them! As a fun incentive, we will be raffling local seafood prizes to participants! To enter to win a “Clambake for 4″ provided by Nantucket Seafoods:
  1. Order the NantucketGrown Local Catch of the Week.
  2. Take a photo of it.
  3. Post it on Facebook and tag Sustainable Nantucket and, if possible, the restaurant.
Customers who perform the above steps with each featured fish at 4 different restaurants are entered by Sustainable Nantucket in another, separate raffle to win the “Weekly Local Catch for a Family of 4 in August” (2 lbs of local fish per week) provided by Nantucket Fresh Catch! So visit these participating restaurants each week of July — and try something new and delicious!
