Everything you need to know about becoming a member.

Our seafood

Our fish and shellfish is sourced from Maryland's portion of the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean and caught in accordance with state and federal  fishing guidelines.

Availability

Given most of our seafood comes from a wild fishery, we may encounter times that weather prevents our watermen from providing us with product. Every effort will be made to provide the bi-weekly delivery.

Processing

  • Fish will be fresh, filleted and scaled. Filleted fish may contain bones.
  •  Shellfish will be raw and may be in the shell or shucked.
  •  Crabs may be live, steamed, or picked.

Subscription/shares

  • Both a full share and a half share option are available.
  • Every two weeks, you will receive 3 to 4 or 1 to 2 pounds of seafood, respectively.

Share composition

  • Your bi-weekly share may consist of filleted finfish, shellfish or other ocean and bay species.  Unlike vegetable and fruit farmed produce, the availability and variety of wild-caught seafood is dependent on a number of factors including seasonality, weather, and fishing location.  When choosing seafood for the weeks' share, we will be selecting product based on what is available and will do our best to diversify the species you receive for the duration of your subscription so you can explore the rich and diverse selection of Maryland seafood. Your package could potentially contain a combination of the following: 2 to 4 oz fish fillets of various species, oysters or clams (shucked or whole),crabs (whole, soft and/or picked) and lobster.
