Community Supported Fisheries – Akiwenzie’s Fish & More…
I will give you a little history/summary of our business. We started in 2002 but really Andrew has been fishing since he was young. He fished with his uncles out of a wooden row boat when he was 8-9 years old before he left for school. We started at the Owen Sound market in 2002 as a business and slowly grew to the Keady Flea Market and Crow’s Creek market. In 2006 we started in Toronto at Riverdale Farm.
We catch our own fish and occasionally we buy off other community fishermen. We process the fish which consists of cutting, pinboning, smoking, packaging and pricing. We operate a provincially inspected fish plant and our days are spent with a lot of cleaning of this plant and organizing for the next market.
Our main catch is Georgian Bay Whitefish and some lake trout. On occasion we have caught other species like pickerel or rainbow but this is rare and usually quite a surprise for us to see one.
The costs for a full or half share for this year. Full Share $400 and Half Share $200.
