Mark & Kerry Marhefka, Abundant Seafood
The reason I love hanging around Mark and Kerry Marhefka is simple -- it makes me feel good! Their passion for what they do with their company, Abundant Seafood in Mount Pleasant, SC, as well as their love and respect for the ocean that feeds us, is infectious. They were one of the first in the country to start the direct-sourcing model of Community Supported Fishery, and currently they serve more than 300 weekly subscribers who come to the dock to pick up fish fresh off the boat. Abundant Seafood is also the fishmonger for many a well-known Southern chef, so I went to their dock for a visit to learn more.
From fish regulations to the best way to grill a fish (hint: it involves pancetta), we have a good time talking in the dockhouse.
