About Fishadelphia

Fishadelphia is a community seafood program based in South Philadelphia.

Fishadelphia connects communities: we bring high quality, fresh seafood from regional harvesters and processors to economically and culturally diverse consumers at reasonable prices. Fishadelphia’s day-to-day operations are planned and coordinated by a group of high school students at Mastery Charter Thomas Campus in South Philadelphia.

Species Offered

Our goal is to provide you with the best, freshest fish at the lowest price. And your fish hasn’t been caught yet! So we can guess what species we think we will get, but we can’t say for sure until the week it’s caught! In the fall, we expect that we might get any of the following species: scup (porgy), dogfish, skate, flounder, black sea bass, whiting, bluefish, mackerel, squid, clams, oysters, and whelks. In the spring, we might get any of those species, plus scallops and blue crabs. We will send you an email a few days before you pick up telling you what kind of fish you will be getting. The amount of fish depends on the cost of the fish: some weeks you may get less than a pound, but other weeks you may get up to 5 pounds of fish!

The value statements outlined below aim to create a higher level of accountability and trust, both internally within the network and externally to the public, in order to advance the movement of Community Supported Fisheries (CSF) and like-minded community-based seafood operations.
