YOU JOIN. WE CATCH, PROCESS AND DELIVER. YOU ENJOY.

CAUGHT IN PORT ORFORD, OREGON

 

The Community Supported Fishery is an idea born out of the CSA movement. In a CSA you develop a relationship with your farmer, and pay them directly for their produce. In our Community Supported Fishery, you directly support the Port Orford fishing community and develop an understanding and appreciation for fishing as a way of life. Our CSF offers regular deliveries of Port Orford seafood to 12 communities in Western Oregon.

We think it’s important to connect with the source of your food. By catching and processing your seafood ourselves, we knock out the corporate link in the supply chain and are able to tell the complete story of where your seafood comes from. We see ourselves as stewards of our environment, we care for it and it cares for us.

WE CATCH & PROCESS

We fish hook-and-line, year round for a wide variety of species. Each fish is handled individually, promptly iced, and landed in Port Orford. Once on land, fish are filleted, vacuum-sealed, and blast frozen.

OUR STORY

Port Orford Sustainable Seafood (POSS) was formed in 2009 to help fishermen and our community retain more value of our local ocean resources.

The existing system here in Port Orford was comprised of only two corporate buyers. This system also limited access to seafood. Even though it was caught in our own small town, it all left on a truck and became mystery fish.

We set out to pay a fair trade price to local fishermen for their fish, process fish here in Port Orford and pay processing employees a fair wage, sell Port Orford fish in Port Orford, and provide high-quality, traceable fish to Oregonians.
