HOW IT WORKS
Where does your seafood come from?
Large corporate seafood buyers dominate the market, which limits access to our local seafood and puts the squeeze on our fishermen and their families.
We think differently.
Instead, we pay fair-trade prices to our local fishermen, who catch & process seafood right here in Port Orford. This allows us to sell Port Orford seafood right here at home, and provide the best quality, sustainable & traceable fish to Oregonians.
By catching and processing your seafood ourselves, we knock out the corporate link in the supply chain and tell the complete story of where your seafood comes from.
How does it work?
Our Community Supported Fishery (CSF) is an online seafood market. Members pre-pay for credits which are used throughout the year to buy items directly from our yearly catch.
Shares start at $100, and can go as large as you’d like, in increments of $100. This credit is used to purchase items directly from our online fish market. You pick up your seafood monthly at 12 communities in Western Oregon. Members pay an annual $15 membership fee, which covers the cost of admin.
That’s it – no hidden costs or surprises.

What does it cost?
Members purchase a share for as little as $100, and as large as they’d like, in increments of $100. This becomes your credit that is used to purchase items directly from our online fish market. Members also pay an annual $15 membership fee.
How do I signup?
All CSF orders and sign-ups are accepted through Farmigo. The 'Join Now' links will connect you to our Farmigo page, where you can complete your sign-up.
How do I order?
We use weekly emails to inform you about what was caught and processed in the last week. Members login to their account and select the items they want from our online fish market. Your order can be built out over the course of several weeks, or even months.
How am I billed?
Our online fish market displays items in one pound units. Our fillets typically range from 0.85 – 1.15 lbs. Each item you select will be marked with its exact weight and price per pound. Before you are charged, your member account will be manually adjusted to reflect actual weights.
Can I add more credit?
Yes! We encourage you to try and right size your share for the whole year, but we realize that this isn’t always an option. Feel free to start small and add more credit later.
Does my share expire?
Credits should be used by December 31 of that year. Balances less than $50 can be rolled into next year, if you have prepaid for the next year's fishing season.
