2016 Community Supported Fisheries

Wow it has been a long time.  Oops...  Long enough that I forgot the e-mail I used and even the password.  I stopped for the camera I was using and still using said the pics were to large to post to the blog.  I never have figured out how to fix that.
Anyways, this years CSF I hope is ready and hope it has a good response. Something we hope it can help with this year is a new roof and side porch for the fish plant.

CSF – Community Supported Fisheries for Akiwenzie’s Fish & More…

It is that time of year again!  It was a mild winter so we don’t have to wait for the ice to move on out but we have to be sure the ice from other shores won’t blow our way. 

The dates the program will run this year.  Start date is May 21, 2016 to December 17, 2016.  It is a 30 week span.  Deadline for payment is Saturday May 7, 2016.

I have added an extra option for some may find this helpful for next winter.

Option 1:
Half Share - $200 Maximum we ask you can spend at our table per market is $50. 
Full Share - $400 Maximum we ask you can spend at our table per market is $80.

There is no minimum for either of these and it covers everything on the table which could include fresh or frozen whitefish and/or lake trout.  Smoked whitefish and/or smoked lake trout.  In the Fall it also could be whitefish or Golden caviar. 

We ask if you want something specific, please e-mail me a couple of days before a market so we can put your name on it so it saves on your disappointment.  Examples would be whole fish, fish heads/skeletons.

Option 2:
Ordering 1 - 10lbs box of frozen (maybe fresh fish, weather and catch permitting) Georgian Bay Whitefish or Lake Trout.  You can pick it up between June – December.  Dates can be negotiated to work with you and work with us for it depends on the weather and fishing conditions. 

Cost:  $135

A ten pound box normally cost $150/10lbs but we will sell it to you for $135/10lbs box which is a 10% discount.  This we see would work for people who don’t come to market too often or to fill their freezers in the Fall/Winter. 

Payment Options for either choice:    Cash, Cheque or e-mail transfer. 

Reminder: We have a Standing Fish Order list.  We can add your name to a list of customers that have a piece of fresh fish put aside them.  Just need to know their preferences in species and size.  Then if we have it, it will be waiting for you at the market.  Then you don’t have to rush and possibly miss it.  We will sell it after a certain time depending on which market for we know things might be busy or things come up and you can’t make it.
