Farm Site Spotlight: Off the Hook Community Supported Fishery

Jul 5, 2010
Posted by: Small Farm Central

Off the Hook Community Supported Fishery is Atlantic Canada's First Community Supported Fishery. They're connecting a co-operative of small-scale, groundfish bottom hook and line fishermen from the Bay of Fundy to subscribing customers in and around Halifax.

CSFs (like CSAs) provide several benefits to small-scale fishers, including more family income, more market choices, and increased ownership and livelihood control. And their subscribers enjoy access to the freshest local, traceable, high quality fish. We're happy to have Off the Hook join the SFC community!

"I've seen two people well up with tears while looking at the site, and have had lots more general compliments...You've been an instrumental part of what I am hoping is going to be a movement that really builds speed and spreads through other parts of Atlantic Canada...."
-Sadie Beaton, Off the Hook CSF Coordinator

Off the Hook chose the Herbaecous Template for their website. We did some custom work to make the template a bit more nautical in nature.
