CATCH OF THE WEEK

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.

KNOW YOUR FISHERMAN

Our Fishermen this week are Jayson Driscoll and Colin Barnard, F/V Witchcraft, out of Rye, NH and Charles "Puggy" Felch, F/V Lady Victoria, out of Seabrook, NH.

Captain Jayson Driscoll, F/V Witchcraft, Rye, NH

 F/V Lady Victoria, Seabrook, NH

 

COOKING HAKE

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.

 

 

 

 SHELLFISH SHARES

This week's Biweekly Shellfish Share is local Jonah Crabs. These are caught by our Portsmouth Lobstermen in their lobster traps.

Shellfish Share portion is 6 Jonah Crabs. Crabs will be live at your Pick up location, bags will be provided.

Crab orders closed last night. Please see our Facebook Page here for a great video on how to pick your crabs!
