What is a CSF?
CSF stands for Community Supported Fishery, our project that supports local fisheries in the Northeast which is based on the Community Supported Agriculture model. The goals of this business are simple: to foster economic opportunities, to cultivate healthy communities, and to encourage environmental stewardship. We recognize that conservation is connected to the well-being of communities and people, and we believe that in order to work towards ecological sustainability we must also work towards social equity and local economic stability.
What’s a “share”?
A CSF involves pre-payment by consumers for a ‘share’ of fresh, locally harvested seafood (i.e., a set amount of seafood generally picked up by the consumer on a weekly basis). Just as CSAs can encourage sustainable and profitable farming practices, CSFs have the potential to do the same for fishing.
How it works:
Each CSF Share Costs $400.00. Ten weeks of fresh seafood will be available for Friday pickup at MayaPapaya located in Mountain Green in Killington Vermont. Your weekly share can include a variety of fresh caught bass, cod, fluke, haddock, shrimp, hake, flounder, halibut, sole, scup, sword fish, tuna, salmon, crab, shark, mussels, lobster, skate, monkfish, oysters, clams, scallops, and more! Home delivery is available in certain areas for an additional $50.00, contact us for availability. Your deliveries will be packaged in a plastic sealed seafood bag. Please bring a small cooler with you to pick up if you have one. Seafood offerings should be kept at around 40F to be the most fresh. Ice will be available for your cooler at no charge. Do you need a larger fresh seafood order for an event or party coming up? Contact us and let us know what you have in mind!
Seafood is a nutrient rich food that is a good source of protein, vitamins and minerals. Scientific studies continue to explore the relationship between the unique type of fat found in seafood, the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, in the prevention or mitigation of common chronic diseases.
