CSFs: Port Clyde Fresh Catch and Salt & Sea

This week’s Portland Phoenix includes an article about Port Clyde Fresh Catch and Salt & Sea, the state’s 2 Community Supported Fisheries.

To boost the stocks of endangered fish, instead consume Maine’s underutilized ones, perhaps by joining a community-supported fishery, or CSF. It’s the same concept as community-supported agriculture, where members pay farmers a lump sum in advance for weekly baskets of vegetables. Port Clyde Fresh Catch launched the country’s first CSF, a shot in the arm for Maine’s last ground-fish fleet between Portland and Canada.
