I first want to Thank You for pulling this great event together. I spent many many hours trying to bring attention to a wide community that fishermen and farmers had much in common and that working together to highlight high quality safe good tasting food would be a rode to controling our destiny. I enjoyed seeing long time friends who I hadn't seen in at least a couple years and meeting new people most of whom had a good passion in their eyes. Great topics, great discussions and Thank You…See More

Hey there Craig,
Here is a link to your pics that I re-posted on egullet.org.
Picked up 15 pound from Chaddy on Friday - dropped two 5lb bags at a couple restaurants in Portland, and spent the weekend eating the other bag - really amazingly good, man. I'll see if the restaurants want to order some poundage from the next trip - Friday again? Let me know. Great seeing Dan again after all these years - hope to meet you too soon
How's the shrimp running?
May I have your permission to post those photos of shrimp harvesting on your vessel on a food website called www.egullet.org? I have been promoting Maine shrimp on a national basis for four years there, and I've always wanted a shot or two of an actual harvester, and your pics kick ass. Let me know,
PS: I'm up for buying some off the boat if you are still at it. If you can, write to:
Hi Craig... at this point I think we'd be looking for something like 50-60 pounds of shrimp. And it would probably be most convenient to get it after Christmas week. Have you set a price? What's the best way to proceed?
Looking forward to seeing everything once you finish writing; let me know what I can do to help with the CSF. My first call of the day yesterday morning was from a man who is wildly excited to have the opportunity to drive in from Washington each week for shares from one of the Rockland CSFs. It will be great to see your CSF up and running; there is so much demand for fresh beautiful local fish!
Speaking of, may I use your fish recipe from the Fresh Locally Caught Fish blog for the Rockland CSF newsletters? (Properly credited, of course!)
