Dear %%user-name%%,

We are in Week 10 of our Spring/Summer Session in the middle of the Fourth of July Holiday! It's always so satisfying to be able to provide fresh and local seafood for our Member's on Summer Holidays!

If you need Additional Fish this week for that cookout or family get together, you can get it here! Additional Fish is for Members only and available weekly in 1lb-5lb packages, discounted for orders 3lbs and over!


This week's Fish is the Atlantic Pollock! Pollock tastes a lot like cod, is closely related and a great fish for the grill!

Atlantic Pollock is quickly becoming the new signature New England fish, tasting much like cod and haddock and very abundant. Check out the article which appeared on our Facebook page:http://www.concordmonitor.com/Misunderstood-pollock-a-key-to-New-England-seafood-s-future-2011708.

Atlantic Pollock is related to cod and haddock and sometimes referred to as "Green cod".  Atlantic Pollock are found in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean and are most common on the western Scotian Shelf and in the Gulf of Maine. A different species of Atlantic Pollock, commonly known as saithe, is found in the Eastern Atlantic.

Atlantic Pollock differs from cod in that they have a greenish hue and slightly darker flesh. Not to be confused with Alaskan Pollock, found in the Pacific Ocean and one of the most harvested fish in the world. Alaskan Pollock is often times found in frozen fish sticks and fish fillets and a main ingredient in seafood salad and many processed seafood products.

Our Altantic Pollock has a white, firm flesh with a sweet and delicate flavor. It is low in saturated fat and a great source of B 12 vitamins! 

Pollock is great in fish chowder, broiled, baked for grilled. It is also fabulous for fish tacos and works well with any blackened recipe. Substitute it in any recipe that calls for cod or haddock. Here is are some great recipe ideas on our Pinterest Page:https://www.pinterest.com/nhcsf/pollock.

Our Fisherman this week is Jamie Hayward and his dedicated crew on the F/V Heidi Elisabeth. F/V Heidi Elisabeth is NH's most fished Day boat! This is one of the first week's the Heidi Elisabeth is catching Pollock on all day fishing trips.

Thanks to Jamie and his crew for our Fresh Catch this week!

We have an active Restaurant Supported Fishery, backed by a host of NH's finest Farm to Table Chefs and Restaurant Owners! Try our fresh fish, weekly at any one of these fine dining experiences and tell them you are a Member of NH Community Seafood!

Thanks to our partner, Three River Farmer's Alliance for offering NH Community Seafood fish as their seafood component for promoting local foods in our restaurants!


We ask that all Members do their own HOLDS  and DOUBLES through our Member Login on our website here.

If you do not care for the week's fish or will be away for a week, this is a convenient way to "hold" your share for a week and then you can "double" on a week of your choice!

This will be a short and sweet Newsletter for the Holiday.  Enjoy the fresh Pollock and the remainder of your Holiday!

Thank you for your support and for continuing to help our NH Fishing Industry by buying NH fish and keeping NH fish in our state!

Enjoy the fresh Pollock and thanks for making it Seafood for the Summer!

All the best,

Andrea Tomlinson
