HOW IT WORKS
A CSF is an alternative way of buying seafood which connects you with the source of who caught your seafood along with the where and when it was caught. Purchasing straight from the source allows you to circumvent big seafood - global supply chains often dominated by large industrial operations - which now more than ever are proving unreliable and totally unsustainable, as a means of fishing and seafood distribution. Community Supported Fisheries aim to cut those corporate links out of the supply chain ultimately leading to a better product, with a clear path from the fisherman to your table. When you sign up to be a member of our CSF you can know that your dollars are directly benefiting the Port Orford fishermen that caught it, as well as the team of locals who processed and delivered it. You are helping solidify a way of life in this town, and ultimately preserving our fishing heritage.
Everything that we catch and process in Port Orford is reserved just for our CSF members via an online seafood marketplace that we call: THE DOCK. This is your window into our inventory.
Every Monday, The Dock is updated with new cuts that we have brought in and processed over the preceding week. This serves as your cue to check out what is fresh at The Dock, and build out your share for that month.
The cost of your share each month depends entirely on your tastes. Most of the cuts offered in The Dock range between $10 – 20/ lb, with some standouts – such as Chinook Salmon and Shucked Dungeness Crab – typically costing closer to $30/lb.
