CSF - Community Supported Fishery

May 18, 2012

This is very exciting ~ Mermaid Farms just announced that they’re launching a CSF. Similar to a CSA you are guaranteed a weekly supply of super fresh, sustainable fish at a reasonable price. Your participation also ensures the fair compensation of the fishermen we work with.  All of our fish is traceable back to the boat it was caught on, the fisherman who caught it and the catch method that was used. The Mermaid’s Garden CSF offers higher quality, value and transparency than traditional retail models. Fish types include: Black Bass, Bluefish, Haddock, Hake, Monkfish, Pollock, Porgy, Skate, Striped Bass, Summer Flounder, Swordfish, Tilefish, Tuna (Yellowfin and Bigeye), Wreckfish and shellfish when they can.
Half shares start at $99! 
No Williamsburg or Greenpoint pick up locations…. yet! I really want this - there isn’t really good place to get good fish around here so I’ll see what we can do to have a drop-off here!
