Want fresh local seafood? Join a Community Supported Fishery (CSF).

I lived at the beach for over a decade and was spoiled by the ready availability of fresh seafood. Now there’s an option to have seafood fresh from the Coast without having to make a road trip. A community supported fishery works the same as a farm CSA.  Listed below are a few that I know of and if I’ve missed any please let me know.

Core Sound Seafood, from the site: Our goal is to provide a market to these Downeast Carteret County fishermen and their families by offering locally caught, fresh seafood to inland communities. We also utilize locally owned, Down East businesses to help provide items like hand-picked, fresh crab meat to shares.

Locals Seafood, from the site: The Locals Catch CSF is a curated weekly selection. One share costs $25/week. That $25 guarantees approximately 2 lbs. total weight of seafood for each week of your share period.

Walking Fish, from the site: We operate a CSF during the spring, fall, and winter months in Durham and Raleigh, North Carolina. Founded in 2009, the Walking Fish CSF is proud to be one of the most well established CSFs in North America. Through our CSF, members receive a variety of fresh, local seafood including flounder, shrimp, jumping mullet, triggerfish, and blue crabs
