Eat Fresher Fish.  Support Our Local Fishing Industry.


 

 

Dear %%user-firstname%%,

Welcome to Week 3 of our Holiday Seafood Medley! Our seasonal seafood this week are Dayboat Scallops! Our NH Fishermen are just getting started with the scalloping season, so we relied this week on our New Bedford Guestboats.

Additional Scallops are available until 12pm tonight. Order here for bags in quantities 1 lb or 5 lb! Serve up Scallops for the Holiday and dazzle your family and guests!

You will find some great recipes here for Scallops on our Pinterest Page

Next week's Premium Fish will be either Halibut or Grey Sole, depending on market price. Once we know, we will open up the Additional Fish order for next week, our final week of the Holiday Medley.

Thanks for making it local and seasonal Seafood for the Holidays! And for supporting our local and regional fishing industry!

Happy Holidays,

Dear %%user-name%%,

It is hard to believe it is already the Final Week  of our Fall Session! This is our last week, Week 16. Your 16-week and Annual Memberships end this week. Thank you for your Membership this Season! Our Catch of the Week will be Acadian Redfish. 

And Scallop Add ons this week, order here by midnight tonight! We have Scallops in 1lb and 5lb bags this week! Stock up, scallops freeze nicely!

If you still want to receive fresh, local seafood for the month of December, join our Annual Holiday Seafood Medley Session. Four weeks of a different, local seasonal seafood! Make it seafood for the Holidays! Sign up here.

A Holiday Medley share is just $100 for 4 weeks and makes a great gift! Sign up today.

If we don't see you in December,  we take a break while the Fishermen take a break, and start back in April! Sign ups will be available in February 2019!

 

STOCK YOUR FREEZER

And remember, we have Additional fish every week. Stock up on Redfish or Haddock here for the last week of the Session.

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 Guestboats out of Gloucester, Mass including F/V Captain Joe. Our only NH Fisherman fishing this week was Monk fishing, which we have offered several times this Session. We chose to give one of our less common offerings, the Redfish. 

 

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.

 

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS

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

Our Restaurants will be carrying our fish until Jan 1! Please support them.

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 SO MUCH 

Thank you for your support for our local New Hampshire fishing industry this Session! And a special Thank You to all our Annual Members this year! Your  Membership has directly helped our local fishermen, oyster farmers, and lobstermen this Season!

We hope to see you for our Holiday Medley Session and if not, we will be back once the guys go back out fishing, about mid-April 2019!

 

Happy Holidays,
