NH Community Seafood: Time to Sign Up for Local Seafood Shares!

New Hampshire Community Seafood - give the gift of fish!From NH Community Seafood:

New Hampshire Community Seafood is excited to announce our new 2015 Season and look forward to delivering you the freshest, local seafood available in New Hampshire. With dramatic reductions in total allowable catch on many species this year and increasing restrictions on the fishing industry, NH Community Seafood needs your support more than ever! We are striving to preserve our fishing heritage by providing our fishermen with a higher price for their catch while providing you with fresh, locally caught seafood from right off our shores!

We are pleased to announce that we have added two new pick-up locations, one in Greenland at the Farmer’s Market (starting second Session) and one in Barrington (close to Lee/Durham) at Brasen Hill Farm.

We will be offering Full Shares (2lbs/week), Half Shares (1lb/week) and Quarter Shares (1/2lb/week) of the freshest, most sustainably harvested fish found anywhere in New Hampshire. This year, we will be offering four sessions (dependent on supply), starting May 18. Sessions will be 6 weeks long, as opposed to 8 weeks, like last year. This is the result of a consumer survey performed earlier this spring where the idea of 6 week sessions proved more popular.

We are also working on making available add-ons like oysters, lobsters and scallops this year for the shellfish lovers out there! Eventually, due to fishing restrictions, we may be including these items as part of your weekly shares depending on fish availability. If you are not a shellfish fan, you can simply  “hold” that week and double up on fish the following week.

If you have any questions, see our updated website or feel free to email me at the address below. I look forward to hearing from you and sharing with you our Fishermen’s stories, fishing industry news and some great new recipes!
