WHY THE SOUTH CAROLINA SEAFOOD ALLIANCE NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
The mission of the Alliance is to increase production and consumption of fresh local seafood. Success of this mission will depend on the Alliance's ability to manage and prioritize it's resources. Initially we must create a single, strong voice for the South Carolina seafood industry. This single unified voice will resonate with goverment, regulators, media and members of our community. The object is to reach a critical mass of support from industry and concerned citizens that calls for recognition of the fact that 91% of all seafood consumed in the U. S. is imported, resulting in a $14 billion trade deficit. In addition to creating a single, strong voice for the seafood industry, your financial support and membership in the Alliance provides you with access to information and influence over decisions that affect your ability to source fresh local seafood.
