Iliamna Fish Co. is a family-owned cooperative; we've been fishing together on the Bering Sea in Bristol Bay, Alaska for over three generations. In 2010, following the example of farming friends, we started a CSA in our boats' catch. Individuals can now join us in our sustainably-managed (MSC-certified, Monterey Bay Aquarium-recommended, and Environmental Defense Fund "Eco-best choice") wild sockeye salmon fishery, as shareholders in our harvest. In addition to individuals like you, our customers include Blue Hill at Stone Barns, Diner, Marlow & Sons, and Estiatorio Milos in Manhattan.
A share is ownership of part of our harvest, a wild Alaskan sockeye salmon fishery. A single share is 12 lbs of premium, wild sockeye, that we've caught by hand for you in our small, 20-foot-long boats. Your 12 lb share of wild sockeye will consist of 6 to 7 individually vacuum-sealed and flash frozen, sashimi-grade, hand-cut whole fillets. Each fillet weighs approximately 1.85 lbs and serves six adults. A 12 lb share fits easily into a standard refrigerator freezer, with room to spare. This season, for the first time, we are also offering portioned fillets (a 12 lb share of portioned fillets is simply our whole, hand-cut fillets that have been hand-cut into 6 to 8 ounce portions that are also individually vacuum-sealed.)
The total cost of a 12 lb share of whole fillets is $220. The total cost of a 12 lb share of portioned fillets is $230. When you sign up for a share, you'll pay 50% of the total cost ($110 or $115). If you wish, you can pay for the total when you sign up, but you are only required to pay 50% at sign up. You'll pay for the second half of your share when you pick up your share in the autumn. Your deposit enables us (your fisherwomen & men) to plan for the season, run our boats, and to keep your share price affordable.
Until the list fills up or a location reaches capacity, you can choose between 9 pickup locations (3 in Manhattan [UWS, UES, LES], 3 in Brooklyn [Wmsbrg, Park Slope and Red Hook], 1 in Kingston, NY, one in Maplewood, NJ, and for the first time one in Philadelphia, PA). Our CSF isn't a subscription, so you only have to pick up one time (your whole 12 lb share comes neatly packaged). You'll choose the pickup location, date, and time during the sign-up process from our availability calendar. The first available pickup dates, until the days fill up, will be in mid-September, lasting through the end of October.
