CHARLESTON, SC, December 02, 2020 /Neptune100/ — Dok To Door, an online seafood marketplace that helps local fisherman sell high-quality seafood to customers around the country, announced today it has partnered with seafood vendor Chipman’s Wharf, a family owned seafood business from Milbridge, Maine.
Founded in 2004, Chipman’s Wharf, owned and operated by brothers Chris and Jason Chipman, will sell and distribute its seafood on Dok To Door’s marketplace — offering customers seafood caught locally off the bold coast of Maine.
“We are thrilled to welcome Chipman’s Wharf to our platform and look forward to working with them as they sell and distribute their locally caught seafood to our customers around the country,” said a Dok to Door representative “At Dok to Door, we are committed to serving our customers by providing the finest quality of seafood in every order and helping local fishermen connect directly with the customer during these trying times — and Chipman’s Wharf will help do just that.”
With the negative impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the fisherman and seafood markets, Dok to Door offers seafood vendors a new, innovative way to rebound from hardships they suffered due to the pandemic and reach customers with ease.
“Dok To Door has provided us with a platform to sell our products online during a time when business is tough and the future of our industry is uncertain,” said Jason Chipman. “They truly care about small, local seafood businesses and want them to succeed by adapting to an e-commerce model that actually helps. Now we have a new opportunity to provide fresh lobsters and scallops to people around the country with the click of a button.”
With fishing being a long-standing tradition in the Chipman family, owners Chris and Jason are fourth generation fisherman — with each captaining their own boat: Chris captains F/V Monica Tymin and Jason his boat F/V Miss Amity. Chipman Wharf catches both hard shell and soft shell lobsters off the icy cold Atlantic waters, with several boats coming in daily.
