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:
      Trident Seafoods
      American Seafoods
      Ocean Beauty Seafoods (actually has info on their website: )
      Alyeska Seafoods

        This looks awesome, but I don't see that they're available in Seattle. Did I miss something?

        1. I have a source of high quality Cook Inlet sockeye filets, free of bones and shrunk wrapped, processed and frozen on the boat.
          An excellent product.
          The last number of years I had a friend on the boar so not a problem to get a box or two.
          The friend no longer works there so ...

          Problem is the order has to be 2000 pounds.
          Each box is 25 pounds and each filet is about 1.25 pounds.
          About $9 per pound depending on the market.
          So 25 pounds X $9.00 = $225.
          If there is interest I'll figure a way to go off line to set it up.
