This course is designed to introduce existing Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) members and/or producers to Community Supported Fisheries (CSF). The course will show how fisheries and their products can be integrated into a CSA program or a CSA basket. It also seeks to contextualise CSFs and their role in short food supply chains and introduce some of the guiding principles (and the overlap with CSA) that animate CSFs. The module will explore the practical realities (storage, legal requirements, distribution) of fisheries, and examine how CSAs can overcome these new challenges by establishing partnerships with local fishers.
