How does a share work?
Each week members pick up their pre-paid shares. Members can choose to sign up for 2 months at a time, and can renew their membership at any point.
What is in a share?
Our fish shares vary from week to week and consist mainly of fillets of Acadian Redfish, Haddock, Monkfish, Pollock, Flounder and Hake. The contents of each week’s share vary depending on what the boats bring in. Our Single Share consists of at least 1lb of fresh fillets weekly, and our Double Share consists of at least 2lbs of fresh fillets weekly. Both shares include occasional Gulf of Maine products like dried seaweed snacks and homemade fish cakes.
We also work with local shellfish harvesters, and offer Gulf of Maine oysters, clams, mussels and scallops. Depending on season, our Shellfish Shares include either a dozen oysters, or a bag of mussels, clams or scallops.
