In the Palmetto State finding FRESH seafood is no problem. Thanks to South Carolina’s fishing industry and the men and women who make a living fishing along the coast, fresh seafood is abundant. For South Carolinians, this is a double windfall. Firstly, it means you can find fresh seafood almost all of the time and cook it yourself – if you want to.
