What is a CSF?

WHAT IS A CSF?

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.

2016 Season Now Open!

Sign up by Tuesday June 7th for our early bird special: $16 per pound of fish fillets locked in for the whole season. After the 7th, prices will go up to $17 per pound

We are excited for our fourth season operating in New York City! The coastal waters are warming up, enticing fish back inshore where our small boat NEW YORK fishermen can catch them.

We look forward to another year of super fresh seafood (rated by the Monterey Bay Aquarium as sustainably caught) such as bluefish, black sea bass, flounder, fluke, squid, swordfish, monkfish, and yellowfin tuna.

Hope to see you soon!
