The Local Catch CSF 

(Community-Supported Fishery)

Community-supported fisheries are modeled after the well-known community-supported agriculture (CSA). By purchasing a CSF share, you help fishermen finance their operations. The Local Catch CSF program works as a debit system. A set amount of money is preloaded at the beginning of the contract, and the participant may spend that preloaded money at any pace they desire. 

  • Receive a 10% spending bonus.
  • Does not expire.
  • Start your contract at any time.
  • Shop for what you want, when you want.
  • Shop at any farmers market you'd like.

The Local Catch offers two options for CSF participants:

  • Half share: $144 (total value: $158)
  • Full share: $288 (total value: $317)

Sign up for our weekly newsletter here to see each week’s selection.

We are not currently able to offer fresh shellfish for sale at all market pickup locations; however, CSF participants may preorder shellfish as part of their weekly share with at least 48 hours notice of a market pickup. Email shellfish preorders to thelocalcatch@cox.net.

The Local Catch, Inc. CSF shares are non-refundable.
