Seafood ‘shares’ available in New Orleans

Cool idea. Story via NOLA.com (full text):Β crescent city farmers marketlogo

As they started doing for Lent 2011, the Crescent City Farmers Market (more) is once again offering a certain amount of fish for a certain price. They are CSFs, the fisheries version of CSAs.

CSA means “community supported agriculture,” a popular concept in which those who invest in the farmer at the beginning of the season get a weekly box of vegetables from the farm. The CSFs are “community supported fisheries.”

In the CCFM method, for $100, subscribers will get six weeks of fresh, local seafood in an insulated bag, enough for dinners for two.

From CrescentCityFarmersMarket.org:

What’s the catch? Shares may include black drum, rondeau seabream, flounder, wild caught catfish, speckled trout, crabmeat, soft-shell crab, whole shrimp, or peeled & deveined shrimp.
