About NoFo Fisheries

Hello! I am one, of very few local NY commercial fisherman. With one small commercial boat, I fish the clean, beautiful waters off Long Island, NY, seasonally, from April - December, bringing the freshest fish possible to my customers.
All fish are caught mainly on the North Fork and in the Eastern Long Island Sound. My customers/friends know me as Captain Chris "Fish", and all fish caught by NoFo Fisheries is guaranteed "Long Island Fresh". Give me a call, text or email to find out what the catch of the day is! If I don't answer right away, it means I'm out on the boat landing the catch, but I will get back to you as soon as my hands are free and dry! Thanks!
-Captain Chris

I am an owner/operator of my own fishing vessel. Having fished on and around the waters of Long Island for many years, I have become one with the environment and with the fishery that I am honored and privileged to be part of. Each and every fish that is landed on my vessel, is treated with a delicate hand and cared for in the most honorable way. The process in which my fish are landed and stored, I believe, has a drastic effect on the quality, appearance and ultimately the taste of the product that I bring to market. The fish itself is handled with care and dignity, and is under no extra stress, after being landed. I believe this process adds greatly to the overall quality of the fish that our wonderful oceans and waters provide to us all. The fishing community is a small one, but a close knit one at that. When living, working, and existing in a fishing community, abiding by the rules (fishery management) is extremely important. Not just for the now, but for the later, future generations. By properly harvesting in a responsible way, while all working together, we can build and maintain a sustainable fishery, ensuring that this wonderful resource is here for many generations to come.
