Who We Are: The Local Fishermen Cooperative
We are your local New Hampshire fishermen. We have been fishing the waters off your coast for the last 400 years. We helped build the economy and our nation. But since 1976, our local seafood has been going directly to global auction, leaving New Hampshire. Alarmed about our future, fishing boats from Seabrook, Hampton, Rye Harbor and Portsmouth Harbor organized a harvest coop. We created this Community Supported Fishery (CSF) to better protect marine resources and fish more selectively.
How It Works: 48 Hours Dock-To
NEW HAMPSHIRE FISH IS CAUGHT SUSTAINABILY
48 hours before you pick up your fresh seafood, our fishermen are out on the water. We buy directly from them and immediately process your fish into fillet.
PICK UP YOUR FILLETED FISH
Your seafood shares are delivered once a week to your pick-up location. We have 21 local shops, farms, and markets to choose from.
COOK AND SHARE YOUR RECIPES
With NH seafood, the possibilities of flavorful seafood dishes are new with each catch of the week. Check out our recipes for ideas and show us what you make!
