When it comes to seafood, freshness counts, and lucky for us here in Rehoboth Beach, the time it takes for today's catch to become tonight's dinner is minimal. Since Delaware has the advantage of being both bayside and ocean side, there are hundreds of regulated commercial watermen who can supply fresh catches to seafood markets year round. There are many advantages to having local suppliers. Local seafood is harvested in a sustainable way, it keeps money in the local economy by cutting out “the middleman,” it’s ecological, and reduces time from harvest to table, ensuring the highest quality freshness.
