Attention all Professional Certified trained sealers.
A new online marketplace for seal and fish harvesters is now available can post their catch and it can reserved or purchased online by you.
From the Wharf website:
What we’re all about?
Getting seafood from the wharf to your dinner plate.
Our company is called From the Wharf.
We are not wholesalers or a fish store. We provide an online marketplace for harvesters to sell their products to the public and restaurants.
Why you sell the items you sell?
We came up with this idea in October 2015 after regulations where changed that (officially) let people buy seafood direct from harvesters. That had been going on for years anyway, but now it’s official.
Harvesters are great business people. They deal with buyers and processors on a regular basis. But a lot of them don’t have a lot of time to direct sell their products, so we thought we’d help them out with this site. It allows them to promote their products without having to spend a lot of time on the phone, posting on social media, etc.
Plus, enjoying fish is a Newfoundland & Labrador tradition! Over the past 15 years, local fish consumption has actually gone down in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada and North America as a whole. We think it’s partially due to price and the availability. So we hope that connecting local harvesters with new local customers in Newfoundland and Labrador can help address these issues by starting this website.
