The University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension is collaborating with the state’s fishing industry to support sustainable, local food. The University’s work with the Yankee Fisherman’s Cooperative is a mutually beneficial collaboration between UNH faculty and New Hampshire’s fishermen and businesses that has a positive impact on consumers. This is just one example of how University of New Hampshire partnerships make a real difference.
Note: The F/V Rimrack in Rye reports that the shrimp season may close as soon as soon as February 17th, earlier than anticipated. If you plan to get shrimp, especially for your year’s supply, the next week may be your last chance. The F/V Rimrack offers shrimp right off the boat, quantities of 5 gallon buckets for $40 or larger; call ahead for landing times and availability: 603-343-1500. Also, Yankee Fisherman’s Coop will be at the Winter Farmers’ Market in Exeter this Saturday, February 12th. If the shrimp season does close next Thursday, this will be the last chance to get shrimp at the Winter Farmers’ Market.
