Off the Hook 2012: Halibut, and new CSF season!
It's finally officially summer, and we are gearing up for a great season of Off the Hook. All of our fishermen were busy fishing for lobster over the winter, but are switching over to groundfish now. We will begin our weekly deliveries of fresh, sustainably harvested groundfish during the first week of July.
We will be switching our main delivery days to Saturday this season, in order to make parking and traffic less of an issue. The main Halifax pickup will be at the Historic Farmers' Market (the same place as last year), from 10-12 on Saturday mornings starting July 7. Other deliveries have also been organized in:
North End Halifax (at the Ecology Action Centre)
Musqudoboit Harbour Farmers' Market (Sundays)
If you are interested in organizing a delivery in your community, please get in touch with me. We need 10 subscribers at each delivery location to make it work.
Sign-up will be available on line soon (as soon as we work out some of the kinks). I'll send out another notice when the sign-up goes live, which will include share options and pickup details.
Beau is on the water today fishing for halibut. You can see a picture he just sent on our facebook page. As a special way to kick off the fishing season, Beau will be bringing halibut with him this Saturday (June 23) to Halifax. You can pre-order halibut steaks, fillets, or whole fish online through our website. To order, CLICK HERE. The fish can be picked up on Saturday morning from 10-12 at the Brewery Market (in the same room we were in last year- off of the lower courtyard). Please place your orders by noon on Friday so he know how much fish to bring.
Let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for supporting Off the Hook.
