Seafood/fish CSA or Bulk Shares?
One of the saddest things for me about Thundering Hooves closing is that I bought 30lb shares of salmon from them during salmon season. Does anybody know of other resources for bulk seafood, especially salmon or halibut? I would usually split it with friends, but it was really fantastic and cost-effective to buy in bulk.
This is a great idea. My greatest all-time crustacean experience (even including fresh Antarctic shrimp) was a case of frozen Snow crab shared with a neighbor who worked for a local (Alaska) seafood processor. Not affordable (or consumable!) by the case, but fractional shares would be fantastic. 'Ono nui loa.
That is what I was going to suggest. Though I'm not sure how much you would have to buy? Trident Seafoods store on Market Street by the Ballard Locks might be a good place to start. Or just cold-call the local seafood processors. The ones I can think of off the top of my head:
