The Dare County Commission for Working Watermen needs volunteers to help launch a project promoting Dare County seafood.
The project will be patterned after the successful Carteret Catch: Select North Carolina Seafood from the Fishermen of Carteret County (www.carteretcatch.org), but tailored to fit Dare County.
Carteret Catch has flourished due to a strong network of support in that county. Community members have created a market identity and promotional activities for fish and shellfish landed by Carteret County fishermen.
The Dare County Commission for Working Watermen believes a Dare County program similar to Carteret Catch would benefit from a broad range of knowledge and experience in fields such as business and advertising, finance, restaurant management, cooking, health, education, marine biology, resource management, graphic arts, as well as commercial fishing, and seafood wholesaling and retailing.
Individuals interested in the project should call Jamie Reibel, vice-chairman of the Commission for Working Watermen, at 252-473-2901.
