A community supported fishery operates under a unique system that allows for direct, fair trade between fishers and consumers. As a member of a CSF, you get the west coast's highest quality seafood at prices fair to both members and fisherfolk. The Michelle Rose CSF is operated by long-time West Coast fisherman, Guy Johnston.
Prior to each fishing season, members purchase a share of the season's catch. This helps my cash flow at the beginning of the season, and I know how much fish to bring home. Once the seafood is caught, members pick-up their seafood shares in Cowichan Bay or Sidney. Shellfish are available early summer and salmon late summer.
The seafood Michelle Rose CSF members receive is frozen at sea at the time of capture, meeting the highest level of quality - the sushi standard. Prawns and shrimp are packaged and then immersed in salt water and frozen. The salmon is dressed and frozen and glazed in chilled sea water for the freshest taste.
