Florida is a state that has a rich commercial fishing heritage, from red snapper in Destin to the spiny lobsters in the Florida Keys. With over 1,200 miles of coastline, our state’s abundant connection to the ocean has helped shape its history, culture and economy. During the 19th century, commercial fishing played an important role in the settlement of our state with Florida’s waterfront communities turning into major hubs of commerce. Over the years, these communities have dealt with a variety of challenges, including natural disasters and economic crises. Over and over, they have rebuilt and grown in spite of the struggles they faced.
Now, more than ever, it is important to show your support for Florida waterfront communities by purchasing Fresh From Florida Seafood. When you buy local seafood you are strengthening the local economy, creating new jobs and investing in the community. You are also doing your part to keep our waterfront communities prosperous. As visitors, when you dine, shop and relax in these communities you are enjoying the best the beach areas of Florida have to offer.
