Real Good Fish is pleased to release this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the USDA funded project entitled “Powered by Real Good Fish: A replication model for new Community Supported Fishery programs,” through September 29, 2021.
There are three opportunities, outlined below. Proposals may respond to one, two, or all, depending on experience, expertise, and capacity.
Leveraging the success of one of the largest and strongest CSFs in the country, Real Good Fish in Moss Landing, CA, this project will create and implement a CSF replicator toolkit and an incubator and support network to catalyze the launch of new CSFs.

includes providing seafood, training and education for schools,

This project will support new jobs in the CSF sector, create high-volume product demand for fishermen, strengthen commercial fishermen’s associations in California, provide seafood access and fisheries engagement for California’s next generation, and catalyze the evolution and growth of the CSF sector.
