Introducing our 2019 Fish Clubs

Our “Fish Club” business model was created to connect our hardworking fishing community here in Petersburg to diverse communities around the US through a shared love and reverence for wild fish. Each year we strive to get a little better at making these connections as fun and seamless as we can. Here’s what we have planned for 2019!

New early bird dates & deadlines

Heads up! To get closer to a “fish to order” business, we’re moving our early bird deadlines into the spring. Your pre-orders help us plan our fishing season around your preferences so we can get you the freshest and most delicious fish possible. Dates to plan on for 2019:

  • April 10 - ongoing: Fish Club Registration for Captains
    Captains registering clubs by May 1st lock in early bird pricing for their clubs, but registrations continues all season! Register your club. (Learn more about how Fish Clubs work here.)

  • April 20-May 20: Early Bird Ordering
    Once your club is registered, Fish Club “crew” members can pre-order with early bird pricing through May 20th.

New Clubs shipping every month

As we add more Fish Clubs around the country and more seafood offerings from our catch, we’ve rebooted how we ship.

In 2019 we’ve got new mixes of seasonal seafood shares each month from June-October. Preview them right here. Captains can register for one or more months. To keep shipping costs affordable, we just ask that you meet our 80-100 lb shipping minimum for each monthly shipment you sign up for. All Fish Clubs ship mid-month and we’ll accept orders till the last day of the previous month. Specific dates for each month are here.

New fishes for you

New this year (drum roll please) are delicious black cod (sablefish) shares caught by Eric and Captain Steve. Black cod is a real Petersburg favorite - by far the richest, most buttery and delicious fish we catch and we’re thrilled to offer it to you. We’re also happy to be offering halibut and frozen smoked salmon shares in 2019. Yum! All of this comes in addition to our usual ling cod, rockfish, halibut cheeks, coho, and king salmon.

It’s all about community

We know we couldn’t do what we do here in Petersburg, Alaska without the support of our friends, neighbors, and partner businesses. Our Fish Clubs help connect this awesome community to your awesome community, a business model that keeps our prices very competitive. Because each of you are part of our business, we welcome your feedback and questions any time. Just call or text or email!


A fishermen's honeymoon

Malena Marvin

After doubling our sales in two years at Schoolhouse Fish, planning a wild Love Celebration in Alaska for a few hundred of our closest friends, and wrapping up three years of breast cancer treatment, we’re overdue for a honeymoon. We’ll walk as many working fishing harbors as we can on the Yucátan peninsula, we’ll be back to Alaska in March to throw off the lines and troll up another season.
