Dock to Dish is a restaurant-supported and community-supported company. It was started in Montauk, New York by a group of 30 fishermen. Their goal was to bring the integrity back to the fishing industry in New York Harbor. Seafood bought the traditional way could have been touched by up to 30 sets of hands from fisherman to the store. Dock to Dish has managed to cut that number down to three sets of hands. Dock to Dish has now expanded with four other locations in Costa Rica, British Columbia, and Los Angeles. Google also partnered with Dock to Dish to help spread the word about the great things they are doing.
Their restaurant partners get 45-50lbs of whole fish a week while community partners have the options of an individual or family plan which ranges anywhere from 2-5lbs of filets. As a community partner, it is required to purchase a "starter kit". This kit contains an insulated bag and ice packs that are needed to ensure proper transportation from pick-up to your home. Waitlists for New York, Los Angeles, and Vancouver, B.C. are all open now for the 2017 season.
