Eat Fresher Fish.  Support Our Local Fishing Industry.

Hello %%user-firstname%%,

It's Week 2 of the Fall Session of our Community Supported Fishery! Welcome to our new Members and Welcome back to all our returning members!

The Catch of the Week is White Hake and this is also the first week of our Shellfish offerings and we are serving up Scallops. Still time to order here, before midnight!

For anyone interested in local fisheries, I will be part of a Webinar along with NHCS Board Member, Dr. Gabby Bradt, from NH Sea Grant, tomorrow at noon. You can come in person to the Paul College, Roon 102 at UNH or access the Webinar online here

NH Fisheries & Marine Ecosystem
Sponsored by the NH Food Alliance


The Catch of the Week is White Hake. White Hake is a benthic fish species typically found in Atlantic Ocean from Cape Hatteras to southern Labrador and are primarily caught using gillnets by our NH Fishermen.

They are cousins to the Whiting and Red Hake and sustainably caught throughout the Gulf of Maine.


Our Fishermen this week are Jayson Driscoll, F/V Witchcraft, out of Rye, NH. Thanks to Jay and his crew members, including Colin Barnard, for our fresh White Hake this week!

White hake are delicious because they primarily eat small crustaceans like lobsters and crabs and shrimp! What a bonus for us! Their flesh has a thick, white meaty consistency and cooks up nicely. Here is a link to some great recipes on Pinterest Page here or on our new Wordpress Blog here.





This week's Biweekly Shellfish Share are Scallops from New Bedford, Mass! 

Still time to order here, before midnight tonight! Scallops are $20/lb or $90 for 5lbs! 

 If you have a Fish Share, you can get Shellfish two ways: 
  • Sign up for our Biweekly Shellfish Share: Every other week, one of the following: Scallops, Lobsters, Oysters or Crabs 
  • Or order Shellfish "alla carte", as an Add on the weeks we have Shellfish


We have a growing Restaurant Supported Fishery (RSF), where Chefs and Retailers order fish through us, directly from our Fishermen. They are able to give customers local Catch of the Week Fish, the Captain and Boat name and the day the fish was landed! Check it out here on our website and visit one of our many Restaurants and Retailers that support serving locally sourced Fish!

We work with Three River Farmers Alliance to reach a wide variety of Restaurants, Retailers and Institutions for our RSF program.
