When lifelong fishermen Chris Brown and Steve Arnold came together to start Wild Rhody in late 2010, they did so for a few reasons.
First, they were looking for ways to create more predictability and stability for themselves (and for other fishermen) in the quotas they are allowed to catch – as well as the demand for that catch and the prices they are paid for them.
Second, they wanted to provide fresher, cleaner seafood to restaurants and retailers, and by doing so, to consumers as well.
Finally, they aimed to lead the way in terms of responsible fishing practices, helping to transition the industry from hunters and gatherers to stewards of a natural resource – our oceans and their bounty.
With these three initiatives in mind, Wild Rhody was formed.
