Community Supported Fisheries (CSFs) are a relatively new idea. CSFs mirror the ideas and ideals that Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs) have laid out for a decade. CSFs support local fishermen, who provide a product that is healthful and harvested in a sustainable manner. The logistics of customers paying before-hand for a set amount of product is also followed, allowing the best product to be delivered to the customer.
Many CSFs have been started across the country in the last few years. Check out the website Local Catch for information on CSFs in general, as well as links to specific CSFs around the country.
