News Across the Region

Want fresh seafood? Don't know where to get it?

Check out Bay Direct's App for IPhone and Andriod!

A fisherman, waterman, restaurateur, farmers’ market and other businesses can post what harvest is available for sale, a consumer can see that harvest and they can make a connection through the app to make a sale in real life.

Fishermen, business owners and farmers can post their available harvest on Bay Direct for free. Consumers can use the app for free.

Bay Direct includes features such as using GPS to find the nearest location with fresh seafood for sale, so if consumers are new to the area or visiting the area, Bay Direct helps figure out where to find the goods.

This app was funded in part by GO Virginia Region 6's Economic Resiliency and Recovery funding.
