The Maryland Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Fisheries marketing program has launched the official Maryland Seafood website, which not only showcases the Chesapeake Bay’s delicious bounty, but the rich legacy that has evolved from its harvest and enjoyment.

“Maryland is legendary for its delicious blue crab, rockfish and oyster,” said DNR Fisheries Marketing Director Steve Vilnit. “This new website is a place where everyone can go to delight in all things Maryland seafood - from innovative recipes to the latest news and events.”

To help consumers enjoy the freshest, most delicious seafood possible, the website features a seasonal seafood calendar, recipes to stir the imagination, health and fish consumption advice, and the more than 70 species found in Maryland. There is information on making sustainable choices that will help the State’s fishery, along with news and events supporting local seafood.

The Maryland Seafood website also highlights the watermen who catch and deliver these products, and provides a historical look at classic seafood towns throughout the region.

“People have enjoyed and thrived on Maryland seafood for hundreds of years,” said DNR Fisheries marketing director Steve Vilnit. “This new website is a portal where modern food lovers can go to support and share in its goodness.”

Everyone is invited to check out to the Maryland Seafood website at, and like on facebook .
