Eat Fresher Fish.  Support Our Local Fishing Industry.


 

 

Some lobstermen have gone to direct sales in the midst of limited demand for fresh seafood. If you are looking for lobsters straight off the boat, you have to contact the individual boats via their Facebook page and follow directions for ordering.

Check these:

Southern Maine Crabs 

Fresh Lobster Portsmouth

F/V Last Penny off the boat

Yankee Fishermen's Coop, on Route 1A, just over the bridge after Hampton Beach, in Seabrook collectively buys from several lobstermen daily. 

Please remember to wear a mask, bring your own container (if buying directly off the boat) and practice the 6 foot social distancing protocol when picking up your lobsters from our lobstermen.

Now, more than ever, we need to support our local fishermen by purchasing local seafood! Give the canned tuna fish, imported salmon and shrimp a rest and eat fresher seafood! Support our local fishing industry!

Sign up for a share with us here today, and get local seafood all season long, starting May 18!

We are so excited to announce we have just created a new way for our supporters to buy local seafood, without committing to a weekly Membership! Introducing the Flexible Fish Membership!

Many of our former and potential new members have said in the past that weekly fish and shellfish is too much for them. We have come up with a new Membership called Flexible Fish

Here's how it works:

  • Order any week you like, no weekly Membership commitment!
  • Select your pick up location when you sign up, you can change your location weekly if needed
  • Selections will include Catch of the Week Fish, Weekly Haddock and  biweekly Shellfish, it looks like this
  • Pay as you go, one time sign up fee of $10

Sign up here for Returning Members

Sign up here for New Members

Select the Flexible Fish Membership and you will receive a weekly ordering sheet every Monday morning with our fresh and local seafood options that week!

Simple as that. We want to make our seafood accessible to everyone and provide a flexible and convenient ordering system that fits everyone's needs!

We sure hope to see all of our former Members who have been waiting patiently for this option to come along!

Thanks for supporting local fishermen, in this crisis, when they need it the most!

All the best,

Andrea Tomlinson

If you haven't seen us in the news yet,  click here for a link to the state of our local fishing industry, since the Coronovirus pandemic, on WBZN news last week, Channel 4 in Boston. 

Local fishermen currently have very little demand for their product. Almost 90 % of our seafood in NH is shipped out of state or exported within 24 hours of landing! These markets are typically wholesale brokers or restaurants and they are not available to our fishermen right now.

We are a cooperative and buy directly from local fishermen, lobstermen and oyster farmers and sell directly to you, the consumer. We pay all our fishermen a fair market price plus an incentive, on every pound of seafood we buy! Our Spring Session starts the week of May 18!

 

EAT LOCAL: We have multiple Pick up locations for you to pick up your shares, many at local farm stores, retail or natural food stores! All are open and deemed essential as food providers!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

 

 

You can support our local fishing industry by signing up for a Fish Share for 8, 16 or 32 weeks. Sign up here today!

We also offer a Shellfish Share, biweekly with a 16 and 32 week option. Sign up here. These include straight-off-the-boat lobsters, crabs, scallops, oysters and mussels!

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: Please be assured our fishermen and processors are using all necessary precautions to keep our fish and shellfish safe! And even better, local seafood passes through minimal hands before it gets to you!

PICK UPS: For pick up locations with staffed volunteers, we will have every  precaution in place to assure your safety. Other pick ups will be self serve with no contact pick up.

There has never been a more crucial time to support our local fishing industry! Please take a few minutes to sign up for a share of fish and shellfish here!

All the best, 

Andrea Tomlinson
General Manager

Dear %%user-name%%,

The Coronovirus COVID19 pandemic has greatly affected our local fishing industry and fishermen throughout the World. In NH, many fishermen are seeing brokers and auctions where they typically sell fish and lobster, having little demand for their product.

This is because 90% of our seafood in the US continues to be imported and the majority of the seafood caught in NH goes to  out of state wholesalers and restaurants. And 80% of the US seafood that is consumed in the US, is in restaurants!

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: Please be assured our fishermen and processors are using all necessary precautions to keep our fish and shellfish safe! And even better, local seafood passes through minimal hands before it gets to you!

You can support our local fishing industry by signing up for a Fish Share for 8, 16 or 32 weeks. Sign up here today! We have multiple Pick up locations for you to pick up your shares.

We also offer a Shellfish Share, biweekly with a 16 and 32 week option. Sign up here.

Our Spring Session starts May 18. If necessary at that time, Pick up locations will be modified for outside pick up with no interaction with the pick up venue.

We hope you can support our local fishing industry in this critical time! Thank you!

All the best, 

Andrea Tomlinson
General Manager

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,

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,

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
