A Jersey Shore company is taking the “farm to table” approach to delivering seafood. 

Hank Rydecki says he started Dock to Door seafood to give people spending time at the Jersey Shore from Margate to Ocean City a convenient way to order seafood online.”I pick out  your seafood, we package it in a reusable-recyclable cooler bag with recyclable ice pack sheets  and we deliver it to your door.”Rydecki said they are sourcing their seafood right from the boats.”we try to eliminate the extra step where it might go to a local distribution center it might get portioned out into different delivery trucks it goes to the local grocer it sits in their case for a couple of days and it’s finally in your refrigerator and you don’t use it until a day or two later.”The service is only for towns along the ocean, not for inland areas.
