Mmmm….fishies.

Mermaid’s Garden is trying to bring a CSF — community supported fishery — to Brooklyn. What is a CSF? Think a CSA, but with weekly fish shares. Essentially, each week you’d pick up fish (whole…fillets…clams…oysters…shrimps…it’s all tbd) that was caught in local waters (Long Island Sound, not East River).

Details, such as pricing, are still being worked out. But first Mermaid’s Garden is trying to to gauge interest.

Nona Brooklyn (great local food site) has the details and an interview with Mermaid’s Garden about the CSF.

Think you might want to try it? Take the survey here.
