Eat Fresher Fish.  Support Our Local Fishing Industry.


 

Dear %%user-name%%,

Our Spring Session sign ups will start May 18! Local seafood is safe seafood and has traveled the least distance and through the least amount of hands as any other seafood!

Many people in New England are realizing it's easy to rely on your local food system in times like this where supermarkets are experiencing an overwhelming amount of demand.

8, 16 and 32 week Memberships for Fish and Shellfish are available here for Returning Members like you! 

Now is an important time to support our local food producers, especially fishermen, whose catch is mostly exported or sold to restaurants! 90% of our US seafood is exported in normal functioning times, so please support our local industry today! 

Sign up today and help keep our working waterfront in NH afloat for another year!

Thank you and stay safe and healthy,

Andrea Tomlinson

Dear %%user-name%%,

Due to the growing concerns of the novel coronavirus, COV-19, we are postponing the start date of our Spring Session to May 18. This will simply run the session 4 weeks longer than originally projected.

      8 WEEK SESSION   May 18-July 11
16 WEEK SESSION    May 18-Sept
ANNUAL SESSION    May 18-Jan 2

This is not because local seafood is not safe to eat, it involves all our public venues that host our Pick up locations. Many will be closed and the CDC has advised us to not gather in large groups and practice social distancing.

Thank you for your patronage. Please email me if you have any concerns, questions or existing holds you will need to be adjusted due to our date changes

In the meantime, if you want to support local fishermen, go to Yankee Fishermen's Coop, just over the Hampton Beach, NH bridge on Ocean Boulevard in Seabrook, NH. Tell them we sent you!

Yankee has local fish and shellfish, lobster sales and crabs, and salmon and swordfish! They will cook up lobster and crab for you ahead of time. Retail hours are here.

Thanks for supporting our local fishing industry,  when they rely on it most!

Stay well and eat local,

Hello Mailing List Member,

Thank you for your interest in NH Community Seafood. In our eighth year, we are a cooperative and a Community Supported Fishery (CSF) that purchases local seafood directly from our local NH and regional fishermen, oyster farmers, lobstermen and shellfish harvesters. In a country where 90% of our seafood is imported, it's important to eat local seafood!

Our product is always fresh, never frozen and all shellfish, other than scallops, are delivered live, it doesn't get any fresher than that!

We provide all our seafood suppliers with an incentive, above and beyond the fair market price, up to .50/lb over boat price when we buy groundfish!

Every purchase you make is directly supporting our local NH fishing industry.

Sign up for a choice of the following for our 2020 Season, at one of our 20 Pick up locations

  • 8, 16 or 32 week (Annual) Fish shares that come in share sizes of 2lb, 1lb and 1/2lb per week
  • Shellfish Shares, delivered every other week with your fish share that include Lobsters, Crabs, Scallops, Oysters and Mussels.

We offer a flexible "hold system" for weeks you are away or don't care for the Catch of the Week offering.

Sign up today here to get your fresh, local, 100% traceable and sustainable seafood, right from your local fishermen! 

We hope to see you this year at one of our many locations!

Eating locally supports our economy, our environment and our working waterfront!

Thanks for your support,

NH Community Seafood

Dear %%user-name%%,

Next week is our final week of the Holiday Seafood Medley Session and we will end with Scallops! What a nice addition to your Holiday table!

Your share will be 1lb of fresh Scallops. Additional Scallops are available here

We will have 1lb and discounted 5lb bags, so you can stock up for the winter. Scallops freeze nicely and do not lose much flavor once thawed!

Thanks for making it fresh and local seafood for the Holiday and supporting our local fishing industries!

Tidings of comfort and joy,

Andrea Tomlinson, GM

Dear  %%user-firstname%%,

Sorry for the delayed newsletter! Welcome to Week 3 of our Holiday Seafood Medley! This week we will offer Oysters from Virgin Oyster Company in Dover, NH.

Your share is 1.5 dozen, or 18 oysters. If you ordered additional oysters, they will also be in 1.5 dozen bags, orders closed Sunday night.

Due to heavy rains this weekend, Virgin Oyster Company will have to outsource oysters from Cape Cod for later in the week.  Heavy rains prevent local oyster farmers from harvesting oysters, to protect us from any red tide issues! 

Enjoy your oysters and next week we have Scallops on the menu for Christmas and Hanukkah! 

Thanks for making it local seafood for the holidays!

Peace and joy,

Andrea Tomlinson
General Manager

Dear %%user-firstname%%,

Thank you for joining our festive Annual Holiday Seafood Medley Session! 

Due to the weather, we had to substitute Lobsters for Mussels this week, as our mussels will freeze and the quality will be compromised, if harvested in this type of weather!

Your share will be 2 chix lobsters, live and banded. Bags will be provided for your lobsters.

The remainder of the Session will be as follows:

WEEK 2 Halibut (1 lb)
WEEK 3 Oysters (1.5 dozen)
WEEK 4 Scallops (1lb)
 
If you like, you can hold one week and double up on another week here.
 
Each week, we will offer extra offerings of the seafood of choice, you will receive an email the week before to order!
 
Thanks for making it seafood for the Holidays!
 
 
Happiest of Holidays,
 
NH Community Seafood
