Charleston Restaurants and Diners- NO locally caught grouper

Bad news!  If you love partaking in Charleston's delicious locally caught grouper, black sea bass, red porgy and/or red snapper, you're out of luck.  As of January 1, 2010, the US Government closed fishing of these species for at least four to six months.

The New York Times posted a story yesterday on the plight of Charleston fisherman, Mark Marhefka.  To read the story, click here--NYTimes.

Local fishermen are being forced to change their fishing habits like the tide.  And, we, diners, will have to change our tastes. 

Anyone for  triggerfish, king mackerel or amberjack?
