“Cut’em loose boys, let’s go to work.” As the boat glides from the dock and the world is waking up with the sunrise, Tyler Chadwick and friends head out to check their crab pots, excited by the unpredictability of the day’s catch and the adventure that awaits. Tyler, the founder of Chadwick’s Seafood, comes from several generations of commercial fishermen. For him, the love of working the water is inborn and a driving force behind the creation of this company. His first intention was to follow in his family’s footsteps and become a commercial fisherman. However, Tyler soon discovered that several factors — including the influx of cheap, imported seafood and the escalating cost of various licenses — were causing fish houses to go out of business, along with local folks who chose to make their living on the water. In response, he started Chadwick’s Seafood to provide North Carolina caught seafood, much of it from the waters surrounding Carteret County, to consumers who value the freshest, highestquality products available, while supporting the local economy and this traditional way of life.
