Mermaid's Garden Fish Share
About Mermaid's Garden Fish Share
Our fish share is a model that connects fish eaters to fishermen. Participants commit to an agreed upon season, during which they receive regular “shares” of fresh fish. This reconnects coastal communities to their food system, promotes sustainable fishing practices, and strengthens relationships between fishermen and the people they feed.
