These are very hard times , affecting all of us in different ways. In amongst the pain and suffering , I think we are catching glimpses of a different world emerging. A world were community , local and resilient have new importance. I like to hang on to these images.
The CSF is Still On. Fishing and food production in general have been declared essential services , so we will be heading out fishing. The past few weeks I have been working continuously with other fishermen on Protocols for interactions with coastal First Nations and communities. We are reliant on these communities for unloading, food and other supplies. We need the them and us all to be safe in this pandemic. The fleet has decided to delay the prawn season for 2 weeks, . So there will be some changes in timing, but as always I will email you 1 week prior to the pick up.
For the pick up we will organize in a way to allow physical distancing . Check out the website and our face book page for updates and to see how fishing is going .
There is no life without a community of souls.
We imperfect souls blazing through the universe in search of true love. A true love of ALL living things.
Let us protect what we have left when this lifts.
Let’s not go back.
We have it in us to be so much more.
