Port Clyde Fresh Catch shrimp CSF's--seven locations!


We are running six-week Maine shrimp CSF subscriptions starting on February 6th, 7th, and 8th in seven locations around the state. Would you please help us spread the word?

CSF is the acronym for Community Supported Fishery. CSFs are modeled after the highly-successful Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA) concept. In both CSAs and CSFs, members pay for shares at the beginning of the season and pick up their shares at a specific time and place each week.

By buying a share of fresh Maine shrimp from the Midcoast Fishermen's Cooperative, you are supporting environmentally sustainable fishing methods and the traditional fishing community of Port Clyde. Most importantly, a share will provide you with a weekly opportunity to enjoy the pleasures of fresh, wild-caught shrimp! We think you will love Maine shrimp as much as we do--stop by our tables at the 2009 Maine CSA Fairs in either Orono or Belfast on February 8th for a free sample, served with cocktail sauce, of course!

Thank you for your time on this.
