How Catch 49 Works
1. Order Your Share
Catch 49 is a Community Supported Fishery (CSF) that offers consumers delicious, high-quality, locally caught, wild Alaska seafood. Like Community Supported Agriculture (CSAs), our CSF allows you to order a “share” of the season’s harvest from small boat Alaska fishermen ahead of time.
The seafood you order is caught by local fishermen who live and work in communities such as Naknek, Kodiak and Nome. These independent family fishermen work to meet the highest conservation and handling standards to bring you exceptional seafood. In return, they earn a higher price for their catch through our program, enhancing the profitability of their businesses and communities.
2. Pick-up Your Share
We currently serve the hub communities of Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Homer with additional seasonal pickups available in the Mat-Su Valley and Seward. Pick-up your seafood at the designated site typically about two weeks after the ordering period closes. We strive to provide convenient locations and times for pick-up. Don’t live in one of those communities? Work with friends, neighbors, or colleagues to get creative about ways to pick up seafood in one of the hubs.
3. Enjoy your seafood!
Whether hosting a dinner party or making a nutritious meal for yourself or your family, Catch 49 brings seafood you can feel great about eating. Your share comes with “The Story of Your Catch” handout that includes bios of the fishermen who caught your fish, recipes, and preparation tips. Make sure to eat your seafood so there is room for the next batch!
