New Hampshire Community Seafood (NHCS) was created to be a type of “farm share for fish,” according to Sarah Vanhorn, manager of the community supported fishery.
The fish is caught and delivered “dock to dish” within 24 hours of off-load, she said.
Vanhorn said NHCS has seen its membership grow from 250 in the first year to 520 in the second season. Distribution points have increased from seven to 13.
Vanhorn described New Hampshire Community Seafood as a cooperative of fishermen and consumers who have joined together to protect the ocean, sustain New Hampshire’s fishing industry and support the local economy.
