Our Program

The South Carolina Aquarium Good Catch generates awareness and leads communities in support of local fisheries and consumption of responsibly harvested seafood.

Meet Our New Good Catch Coordinator

Andrea Margiotta, originally from Morristown, New Jersey, moved to Charleston in 2012 to pursue her Master’s degree in Marine Biology at the College of Charleston. Andrea has previous experience working with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and The Nature Conservancy. You might also recognize Andrea from the South Carolina Aquarium! She spent the last two years as an Education Interpreter, educating guests on the importance of conservation and sharing her passion for oysters and horseshoe crabs, as well as working closely with exhibit guide volunteers. Andrea is thrilled to be a part of Good Catch, spreading the word on the sustainability and, of course, deliciousness of local seafood!

Sustainability Starts
with You

A “Good Catch” is local and sustainable, one that is caught or farmed with consideration for the long-term viability of the species and for the ocean’s ecological balance as a whole. The program has partnered with local restaurants that have committed to serve a higher percentage of local, sustainable seafood whenever possible.

Ask Before You Order

As a consumer, your voice will save our oceans – get on board! Whether you’re at your local grocery store, fish market or favorite restaurant, ask your server or grocer where your seafood came from and how it was harvested.  Supporting local fisheries is the best choice because the United States has some of the strictest fishing regulations in the world.
