Promoting The Shellfish Farming Industry For a greener South Carolina

“Chefs get all of the credit for the food scene in Charleston. But the backbone of our culinary prowess is the amazing local product available to us. Local seafood exemplifies the essence of Charleston’s culinary identity.”
-Chef Mike Lata
