Community Supported Fishery
We operate a CSF during the spring, fall, and winter months in Durham and Raleigh, North Carolina. Founded in 2009, the Walking Fish CSF is proud to be one of the most well established CSFs in North America. Through our CSF, members receive a variety of fresh, local seafood including flounder, shrimp, jumping mullet, triggerfish, and blue crabs.
If you like fresh seafood, North Carolina is an excellent place to live. We benefit from the productive waters of our sounds and estuaries, which produce shallow-water species such as shrimp, flounder, and mullet, and from our proximity to the Gulf Stream which provides pelagic species such as yellowfin tuna, king mackerel, mahi-mahi. Simply put, there are few places that boast the delicious variety of species we have available.
Each season members of the CSF receive a wide variety of specie. Members will enjoy an assortment of fresh, healthy seafood including: flounder, shrimp, triggerfish, spot, hard clams, and black drum. To date, the cooperative has delivered 31 species of the highest quality seafood. These species, we believe, showcase the diversity and flavor of North Carolina’s fisheries and provide a framework for discussing issues, challenges, and opportunities facing North Carolina’s local fisheries.
