Our entire business model is built around community, environmental stewardship, and economic equity by creating a unique distribution model that allows us to bring more money to our community while providing a superior product to our customers. Our direct connection between customer and fisherman allows us to control quality and coordinate our environmental practices for a concerted effort in addressing issues such as waste, managing fish stocks and implementing programs that help to reduce our carbon footprint.
Community Supported Fishery is a fishermen owned enterprise that works with small boat fishermen by running their own licensed and inspected processing facility at the Port of Garibaldi. This means that they are able to maintain the quality and consistency of their products from their boats to your table. They provide a superior product over the large fishing fleets and their commercial processing factories by removing several steps in the distribution process and by allowing their customers to enjoy seafood products that are found close to home. Community Supported Fishery is able to maintain the chain of custody of their fish from boat to table, and can guarantee that each fish was caught using their required sustainable harvest methods, handled with care and most importantly, the fishermen are compensated for the extra effort and for bringing a superior product to your table.
