Changing the way we think of pollock

We've been working to promote eating local seafood and with that comes the need to know what fish is local and whether it's something you'd like. Last fall I was delighted to hear from the Midcoast Fishermen's Co-op that members of their CSF started asking for pollock over haddock or cod. Once members tried pollock as part of their share, they liked the mild flavor and firm texture for everything from chowders to fishcakes to fillets. The fishermen were surprised by this because although they…See More

"Lisa, At the most recent ELFC meeting you mentioned having resolved how to claim donations from the farm to food pantries on your taxes. Is that something you'd be willing to share the how-to of? I'd like to see fishermen doing the same…"

I've attached this response to our newsletter as published in the April issue of National Fisherman, a Portland, ME publication. What do you think?

There she would trade her fresh farm eggs for her weekly baked goods and a treat for us. Then across the bridge to Harbor Fish Market. Howard Latham would take eggs for fish, and then trade some of the eggs with another vendor while holding some aside for his family. After… Continue
