HOLDS AND PICK UP LOCATION CHANGES

Please note, when you pick up a "double" share, you will be getting a double of your share size. For example: 1lb share size picks up 2-1 lb bags, 1/2lb share size gets 2-1/2lb bags. It's really important we get that one right, so everyone gets the correct shares each week!

CATCH OF THE WEEK-ACADIAN REDFISH

Our fish this week is the Acadian Redfish, otherwise called "Red Perch" or "Ocean Perch".  This is our northern Atlantic Grouper species. This big eyed fish looks like a tropical fish from the islands. A member of the Rockfish (Grouper) family, the Redfish is a deep water, goggle eyed, slow-growing, fish that spans from Norway to Georges Bank in our Atlantic Ocean. Not to be confused with red drum, a southern species down south, the Redfish births live young (very rare with fish) and can live to be up to 50 years old! This species, once thought of as by-catch or lobster bait, is quickly becoming one of the more popular fish in the US, especially here in New England!

KNOW YOUR FISHERMEN

Your Fishermen this Week are the Captains and crew on our two Guestboats out of Portland, the F/V Teresa Marie III and the F/V Moragh K. Thanks to the crew of these two boats, for bringing us this North Atlantic Treat! The Teresa Marie III, is one of three boats that hails from Portland, but lands in Gloucester.

 

Acadian Redfish came from the F/V Teresa Marie III 

 

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute (GMRI) Sustainable Seafood Division has an influential seafood branding (Gulf of Maine Responsibly Harvested) traceability and marketing division. In 2015, they declared Redfish among one of the five best fish to eat out of the Gulf of Maine, the waterbody that encompasses our NH shoreline.
 

Five Gulf of Maine Fish You Can Feel Good About Eating

Here are five Gulf of Maine fish that provide an opportunity to support local fishermen, promote a healthy ecosystem, and eat a delicious meal: 

 
 
Atlantic Mackerel-Cape (Dogfish Shark)-Whiting-Redfish-Atlantic Pollock

Whether cooking at home or ordering out, conscientious shoppers often face difficult choices. But when it comes to seafood, there are plenty of fish you can feel good about eating.

Redfish fillets are thin and have the skin on. All the good Omega-3's are in the skin! Cook these fillets for just a few minutes, on each side if frying, grilling or sauteeing! Season overnight for full flavor.

RESTAURANT SUPPORTED FISHERY

In addition to our Community Supported Fishery, we also run a thriving Restaurant Supported Fishery (RSF).  Our RSF is supply driven and operates on the old adage of the "Catch of the Week".  You can read all about it on our website.

The following restaurants and retail stores participate in our Restaurant Supported Fishery (RSF) program. Through their creative talents, they make our delicious local fish taste even better and available to a wider audience! Please support them by eating and shopping there frequently. And let them know you support local, sustainable fish!

 

 

 

We also enjoy a partnership with Three River Farmers Alliance. They help pair our local seafood with chefs in the Seacoast region with a desire for locally sourced foods.

 

Thank you for your support for our local fishing community! We have a small amount of dedicated Fishermen left to support! Thank you for your Membership and support! We have just a few more weeks left to support our Groundfishing NH Dayboat Fleet!

Enjoy the Acadian Redfish, a true North Atlantic Delicacy! Thanks and enjoy the Scallops too!

All the best,
