Fisher to Platter – Community Supported Fishery (CSF)

What is a community supported fishery (or CSF)?

                Community Supported Fishery is a direct marketing model between fishers and consumers adopted from Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), which has now been operating for a few decades in North America. This type of business model operates with fishers setting the price for their product and the consumers pre-paying (prior to the fishing season) for determined amounts (or shares) of the fisher’s catch.
