About Us
Fishtowne, of Beaufort, North Carolina is a locally owned and operated seafood business. Since its inception in 2004, Fishtowne has focused on buying local seafood harvested by local fishermen.

Food safety and proper handling take top priorities from the ocean to the store and to your home. We value your health. Fishtowne is NCDA, FDA, NCDENR shellfish inspected and is HACCP certified.
