April Premium Box
Try our April community supported fishery shares without committing to the entire season! We have a limited number of pre-packed share boxes from our April community supported fishery, which are looking for a place in your kitchen and on your dinner table. What’s inside this box?
A new 2021 CSF offering! Southeast Alaska bairdi (snow) crab (glazed and frozen precooked clusters and legs) caught in pots by our trusted partners at Alaska Glacier Seafoods in Juneau, Alaska. Bairdi, sometimes marketed under the names snow, Tanner, or, in Canada, queen crab, is a prized crab harvested during Alaska’s cold winter months. Bairdi have long legs packed full of tender, sweet meat high in vitamin B-12 — a beneficial nutrient in shellfish.
Haines Dungeness crab (glazed and frozen precooked clusters) caught in pots by local fishermen and processed by our trusted partners at Haines Packing Co. in Haines, Alaska. These “Dungys” came from the recent Southeast Alaska winter fishery, Dungeness cracks open to reveal delicious, slightly briny meat. They’re a west coast classic, perfect for dunking in buttery sauces or stirring into chowders, soups, curries, seafood stews, and risotto.
Southeast and Kodiak Alaska Pacific cod (8 to 16-ounce portions, frozen, vacuum-sealed, skin off, and boneless) caught in pots by local fishermen and filleted by our trusted partner at Alaska Glacier Seafoods in Juneau, Alaska, and our trusted partner in Kodiak, Alaska. This Pacific cod comes from a relatively small Southeast Alaska fishery, typically fished by only about 15 small boats. Delicate and flaky, Pacific cod is wonderful fried, sautéed, baked, or broiled.

What is “the Freezer”?
Although we try our best to forecast exactly how much of a season’s harvest to purchase from our small-boat fishermen, the community supported fishery model has some natural variability to it. It’s both an art and a science to decide how much to buy and how to distribute the catch as evenly as possible among share members. More important and ultimately, species availability is dependent on the health of the fisheries themselves.
When we have a surplus of delicious premium quality seafood after the season’s 4- to 5-pound share boxes are packed, we “stock” the Freezer and make its bounty available to our members or folks who want to try before they buy shares.
We also have unique and seasonal opportunities to purchase additional seafood from our fishermen or trusted partners (but not necessarily enough for all the shares). When we do, we’ll add them to the Freezer for you to order.
Is this the same fish I get in the CSF?
Well, yes and no. The seafood in the Freezer is of the same premium quality from our fishermen or trusted partners. However, not all items in the Freezer will be available in monthly CSF shares and vice versa.
Can I just order one type of fish?
Sometimes we will offer single species boxes in the Freezer in addition to mixed species boxes. We are not currently customizing any of our Freezer boxes.
Do you offer discounts when I order more than one box?
Members enrolled in the 2021 CSF season will receive 10% off Freezer seafood boxes. This applies to ordering one or many. If you are not a member, we encourage you to become one, as access to special discounts and sales are another great membership perk!
