Fresh Fish from the Co-op
The Co-op is pleased to offer the Fresh Fish Program to our members! We work directly with seafood buyers to purchase the best quality they can source, We strive to purchase fish that is sustainably-grown or caught, and we use Seafood Watch (a program hosted by the Monterey Aquarium) as a guide to help us figure out the fish's potential level of sustainability.
Each week, the Co-op publishes a list of fish available and members are asked to place their order by 2 p.m. on Wednesdays. When we send out the fish list each week, we include each selection's Seafood Watch rating so you can make the best choice for yourself and your family. The fish comes to us fresh on Thursdays and is ready to be picked up by 9 a.m. Friday.
Access to the Fresh Fish Program is for Co-op members only. If you are interested in becoming a member, click here and we'll get you signed up!
Co-op Orders with Hudson Valley Fisheries
We teamed up with Hudson Valley Fisheries to provide you with eco-friendly, fresh steelhead trout. We order the steelhead once a month in addition to the regular weekly orders that we place for fresh fish. Members, watch your fish list email to see when HVF orders will be placed.
Let's talk about a fish raised within our region (only 70 miles away!):
Hudson Valley Fisheries on their fish and production “we raise pristine steelhead trout naturally in a sustainable, biosecure, land-based, recirculating aquaculture system located in Hudson, NY. We convert the waste from our facility into fertilizer for our greenhouse where we grow hemp. Our trout are delivered directly from our farm throughout New York & New England within hours of humane harvesting. We have become quite popular as an extremely fresh, clean-tasting, and traceable salmon alternative that is GMO and chemical-free.”
Furthermore, HVF steelhead trout are listed as a Best Choice from Seafood Watch, the same program the store uses to classify the fish on the weekly list.
