Fish share (now it can be told)

Frank Language | | Oct 12, 2000 12:05 PM

Regarding the discussion on these boards about the dismal quality of farm-raised fish (and particularly swordfish), I had alluded in the discussion to there being alternatives. As a matter of fact, the Sixth Street Community Center (between avenues B and C) has been doing a fish share for a few weeks, in which shipments of salmon (red and silver), halibut, and other wild-caught fish are taken in; anyone wishing to pre-order can do so and pick up their fish when the shipment comes in.

This fish is wild-caught in Alaskan streams; the salmon get to jump, and no fish is confined to a tank. I am not a shill and have nothing to do with the business end of this except that I'm a satisfied customer. I spoke to Howard the other day and he said it would be all right for me to post contact information for anyone interested in ordering fish in the coming weeks.
