Community Supported Fishery: Connecting Colorado and Alaska

Posted: November 27, 2014 at 7:31 am by , in Breaking News, Featured, Morning Magazine

Dylan Hitchcock-Lopez grew up in Alaska working on his stepfather’s fishing boat. His mother and sister now live in Colorado and he is connecting the two states by creating a Community Supported Fishery initiative. On the same model as Community Supported Agriculture, Hitchcock-Lopez hopes to connect people in Colorado and New Mexico with his family’s fishing boat in South-East Alaska by offering the option to buy a share of their catch every season. Hitchcock-Lopez says the idea was born when he saw that people in Colorado and New Mexico “crave a connection to their food and are willing to work to build communities of the like-minded around it.” A Kickstarter campaign to fund the Seashaken CSF has until December 15th to reach its goal.
