Pay in advance for for one or more "shares" of Pete & Clara Gerica's catch. Pick up weekly shares at our Thursday evening Mid-City CCFM for Lenten Friday fish frys, shrimp boils, seafood poboys & Gulf Coast cooking.

Don’t delay – the number of shares is limited! Download an order form here.

7-week subscription (one share/week): $100 (a $40 savings!)
