Celebrate National Seafood Month!

As we welcome October, we also celebrate National Seafood Month! Join us all month long to celebrate sustainable seafood, and the abundance of fresh and local species in the Ocean State. 

Supporting a local restaurant also means supporting local seafood businesses. Restaurants listed on our local seafood finder supply one or more RI seafood products.
