Farm CSAs are pretty common – you pay $$ to own a “share” of a farm and pick up a weekly box of asparagus, cabbage or whatever’s fresh that week.

In New Jersey, they’re taking that to the next step – a Fisheries CSA. A dozen fishing groups from lobstermen in Point Pleasant to the Provider ship in Barnegat Light, joined together to deliver fresh, local seafood.

They’re hoping it’ll turn into a year-round program. Sponsored by Rutgers and NJ Sea Grant, the pilot program has 30 members – would you be interested?
