HOLDS AND PICK UP LOCATION CHANGES

HOLDING AND DOUBLING LOBSTERS

If you are a Fish and Lobster Member: Please only hold and double your lobsters on Lobster Weeks. They are Week 12 and Week 14. The two are priced differently and we cannot exchange lobster for fish.

You can "hold" your share any week within the Session that you will not be available to pick up OR any week you do not care for the Catch of the Week. Please use our Member Login to do your holds here

Please note, when you pick up a "double" share, you will be getting a double of your share size. For example: 1lb share size picks up 2-1 lb bags, 1/2lb share size gets 2-1/2lb bags. It's really important we get that one right, so everyone gets the correct shares each week!

You can also choose to do a Temporary Pick up Location change, any week you would like to pick up your share at any of our other 23 Pick up Locations. You can do that here, simply choose "Change Pick up Location" from the drop down menu, under the box marked Action.

ADDITIONAL FISH WEEKLY-HADDOCK AND FLOUNDER

Need some extra fish for your dinner party or family get together? We've got it!

CATCH OF THE WEEK-FLOUNDER

Your Catch of the Week is Flounder. Specifically, American Plaice, affectionately known as "Dabs" from our local Fishermen this week.

The American Plaice or "Dabs" are a cold water species that range from southern Labrador to Rhode Island and in the eastern Atlantic from Greenland to northern Europe. Dabs live on the sandy/mud bottom and prefer deep water. Some can be found as deep as 700m (about 2100ft). They are reddish to gray-brown on top and have a blueish white underside. They have a distinctly pointy nose and rough scales. Plaice is a white, lean flaky fish with a mild flavor. This is a right eyed species.

Your Fishermen this Week are NH Fisherman Jamie Hayward and Fisherman David Goethel. Jamie is Captain of the F/V Heidi &Elisabeth and his crew out of Portsmouth, NH and David owns the F/V Ellen Diane, out of Hampton.

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

Cooking with Flounder is a delicate process. We like to remind all our members of the Cardinal rule for cooking any fish: Cook fish 10 minutes per inch of thickness. These fillets will be very thin, so just a few minutes each side will do!

Here are some great flounder recipes from our Pinterest Page here and a link to our blog with recipe ideas and videos here.
