CSF INFO

Community Supported Fishery (CSF)

Save $$ on a variety of seafood fresh from NC Fishermen. It’s a great way to try new things!

bsb-2014HOW IT WORKS
The Locals Catch CSF is a curated weekly selection. One share costs $25/week. That $25 guarantees approximately 2 lbs. total weight of seafood for each week of your share period. We pick 2 items for you each week and list them here the night before. Fish will be offered filleted (select species will be dressed: scaled & cleaned). Shrimp can be head on or off. Crabs & shellfish are offered by count, not weight. Potential seafood species listed below.

Important: you must be up for trying any of the seafood listed below. If you like picking your items, the share is not for you. ALSO, these are the only pickup options for the current season. We continue to offer walkup retail sales at 3 area markets for those who want to pick up seafood anytime. THANKS!!

What our customers are saying:
“Thank you for this program! We enjoyed our Locals Seafood last night. I appreciate the opportunity to introduce my family to new types of FRESH seafood while supporting NC fishermen, which is important to this Eastern NC transplant who still has many friends in the industry. I look forward to our future shares!”

“Fantastic! Thanks so much for organizing this weekly. We’ve had such a great time finding recipes and cooking together. My kids have even ventured beyond shrimp and flounder, so I consider it a complete success. Last night, we had bacon wrapped BBQ shrimp, and we boiled cubes of sheepshead in a crab boil and served it with drawn butter. Everything was delicious!”

WHAT MAKES THE LOCALS CSF SO AWESOME:

  • It’s a great deal! Share members receive our best pricing.
  • The products! We are excited about the fish we sell, the hard working folks that catch it and the coastal heritage it preserves
  • Our catch members will receive a good mix of NC seafood during the share season. It’s the same exceptional quality seafood that we take to markets each week.

Community Supported Fishery (CSF) is based on a CSA (community supported agriculture) model in which member consumers buy a “share” of a farm and its produce and other products. CSFs connect fishermen to markets. Participants commit to pickup dates, at which they receive regular “shares” of fresh seafood. We are working to reconnect coastal communities to their food system, promote sustainable fishing practices, and strengthen relationships between fishermen and the people they feed.
