Fishadelphia Seafood Club

Buying a Membership to Fishadelphia's Seafood Club is becoming part of our community and getting to pick up a variety of fresh seafood every other week. You pay in advance, we bring fresh fish to Philly, and then you pick up your Share at your chosen location.

FAQ

You don't get to choose which fish you receive.

We send messages telling you what kind of fish you will be getting a few days before your Pickup.

Common species include:

Black sea bass Bluefish, Clams, Dogfish, Fluke (summer flounder), Monkfish, Oysters, Porgy (scup), Skate, Squid, Scallops, Tilefish, Tuna, Whiting

Currently all memberships will receive shellfish on some weeks.

You can stop being a Member at any time (we will miss you, though)!

Our memberships auto-renew; if you paid for one month, you will be signed up to pay again each month; if you paid for a year, you will be billed each year. You can cancel your renewal at any time.

If you would like to cancel your Membership early (before you have picked up all the Shares that you paid for), we can offer you a refund based on Shares that remain, minus a processing fee.

We don’t deliver; in order to reduce costs and serve a wider geographic region of Philadelphia, we have our Members come pickup from ~20 locations in the city.

When you sign up as a Member, you choose a Pickup Site—this also determines which schedule you are on, Narwhal or Seadragon. Every other week during a set time (usually Wednesday evening); you go there to pick up your Share. (We have fish every week, but alternate between serving Narwhal and Seadragon Pickup Sites.)

1. You can donate your Share. We know many hungry people who will appreciate it! Just contact us to say you’re donating/skipping your share and we’ll do the rest.

2. You can find a friend to pick up your Share for you. If you’re out of town, you can ask your friend to freeze your share for when you return.

If you have a friend doing pickup for you, no need to specifically tell us about the switch; just make sure they know how to pick up a Share.

They're all the same, just different prices!

We have a sliding scale for our Seafood Club, which means that you choose how much to pay based on how much money you make. People who can pay more help manage costs for those who pay less.

Our prices can seem expensive compared to other options. We stand by them as necessary to bring fresh, traceable seafood to consumers while also supporting our community-oriented goals.

If you have concerns about costs, you can make your money go farther with Fishadelphia by selecting Whole Fish (you will get more fish with each Share that is finfish); and to sign up for an annual membership (10% discount).

Fillet Club: 1 to 1.5 lbs of finfish fillets

Whole Fish Club: 1.5 to 4 lbs of whole fish (not scaled or gutted)

All members will receive an equivalent quantity of shellfish some weeks.

Generally speaking, a Share is enough to serve 2-3 adults depending how it's cooked (and how much they like seafood...).

We have two options:

Whole Fish Club: You will get 1.5-4 lbs of whole fish that is not scaled, gutted, or deboned for each Share. On weeks that you get shellfish, you will get an equivalent amount of whole shellfish in the shell. There are some exceptions for the whole fish: tilefish are gutted on board the boat (but are not scaled); if the fish are very large (e.g., tuna, swordfish, monkfish, dogfish), you will receive fillets. For resources on how to clean, store, and cook whole fish, see our tips here!

Fillet Club: You will receive 1-1.25 lbs of fillets or an equivalent amount of whole shellfish in the shell (like clams or oysters) for each Share. In some cases, we will leave skin on your fillets. We expect fillets to be scaled and deboned, but pin bones can be an inevitable feature of some species, and your fillets may occasionally include stray scales.
