Quality, Fresh, Local Seafood

We pride ourselves on offering fresh quality, local seafood at fair prices to the Carteret County community


Fishtowne, of Beaufort, North Carolina is a locally owned seafood business. Since it's inception in 2004, Fishtowne has focused on buying local seafood harvested by local fishermen. The Carteret County fishing industry has a long history of producing quality seafood by hardworking, dedicated fishermen. The marine environment provides a variety of shellfish, finfish and crustaceans. The coastline is adjacent to the warm gulf stream waters of the Atlantic Ocean where yellow fin tuna, mahi mahi, grouper, and snapper are caught. Bill Rice, owner and operator, travels from one end of the county to the other, several times per week to stock our market with the highest quality, freshest products available.
