Hi Fellow WLAers!
I've been chatting with the Village Fishmonger about bringing a CSF (community supported fishery) to Astoria. We have a lot of incredible CSAs in the neighborhood and I'm wondering if there is any interest in having access to weekly deliveries of fresh, local, sustainable seafood as well.
Village Fishmonger is trying to gauge Astoria's interest level before searching for a host site. I told them I'd help out by sharing this survey. If you are interested in bringing a CSF to Astoria, please fill it out and share with other interested neighbors: http://eepurl.com/t1cdH
What’s a Community Supported Fishery (CSF)?
a Community Supported Fishery (CSF) is based on the Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) model. just like a CSA, a CSF involves pre-payment by consumers for a shares of fresh, locally harvested seafood to be received at regular intervals during a season. just as CSAs can encourage sustainable and profitable farming practices, CSFs have the potential to do the same for fishing by connecting people like you and me directly to local fishermen.
