Hello Local Seafood Supporters,

We are two and a half weeks into sign ups for our Community Supported Fishery (CSF) and going strong! In case you didn't know, our CSF is like a CSA farm share, but with seafood. Instead of getting what is ripe from the farmer that week, you get what the fishermen are catching that week. Many of you who were members last year have not signed back up yet! We miss you and look forward to your continued patronage! Our first week of pick ups will start on the week of May 18. We have switched to 6-week long sessions this year and look forward to offering you fresh, local seafood from our NH Fishing Fleet.

Your support this year is more important than ever! The fleet numbers are reducing due to stricter limitations on inshore groundfish. Those fishermen left fishing need our community support!.  Our fleet is one of the last true day boat fisheries left in New England.  Up until now, 98% of the day boat  fish landed in NH was immediately shipped out of state to co-mingle with lesser quality fish and sold on the global auctions at poor prices back to the boat. With our Community Supported Fishery (CSF) we offer our local fishermen a higher price than they would receive from the big buyers and then distribute it directly to you, the consumer.

 If you have already signed up, THANK YOU! And please, tell a friend, family member or co-worker about us. Sign ups are done through our website at www.nhcommunityseafood.com. Just go to the link "Sign up for our CSF" at www.nhcommunityseafood.com/members.

 

For Session 1, May 18-June 28, the prices for shares are as follows:

For six weeks of fresh local fish:

Full Shares, 2lb/week at $160

Half Shares, 1lb/week at $80

Quarter Shares, 1/2lb/week at $40

Paying for your share is easy. You can pay on our website when you check out with a credit or debit card using Paypal or you can print out your invoice and send us a check.

We have also added a new pick up location on the Barrington/Lee town line at Brasen Hill Farm (formerly Warren Farm) off Route 4! So if you are in that neck of the woods, you can now pick up there on Thursdays.  We also have 14 other locations all around the state and one in Massachusetts, all listed on our website

We look forward to you joining our community and joining together to help and support our NH Fishing Community and heritage.

All the best,

Andrea Tomlinson
