October is National Seafood Month, a time to highlight smart seafood choices, sustainable fisheries, and the health benefits of eating a diet rich in seafood. This is also an opportunity to showcase some successes as we turn the corner on ending overfishing along with the daily challenges facing U.S. fishermen and local businesses that depend on a steady supply of safe, sustainable seafood.

She works so hard to bring a variety of sustainable local seafood to her customers. This is her story.
