Ahoy Friends!

We’re exhausted after processing 2600 pounds of fresh tuna.  We're also thrilled to get you fish and need your response to make this happen:

  • If shipping, do you prefer delivery on Wednesday 2/18 or 2/25? Please message us on Kickstarter or email us as soon as possible: ahoy@gettwofish.com 
  • If pickup, please come to our Launch Party on 2/12 next to AT&T Park at South Beach Harbor. More details here: Epic Waterfront Launch Party

IMPORTANT: Even with three sushi chefs, we were unable to process so much tuna into sashimi so we cut some into portioned steaks and will include some of these in your order. Each one weighs 25-30% more than the sashimi as a thank you. These are perfect for grilling, searing or cutting into cubes for poke, etc.

If neither of the above options works for you, please email us and we’ll find a solution. Thanks for your patience, the fish is amazing and definitely worth the wait.

Please respond with your ideal delivery date if you selected shipping.  Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you and giving you fish at the party on 2/12.

This is your fisherman, Kent.  He's shy because, "If tuna ever rule the world, I can't have them recognizing me."  Wise words, Kent.  Wise words.

Huge Upgrade... Though it cost twice as much, we sourced amazing yellowfin and bigeye tuna (the darker slices are bigeye).  Why?  Because you’re good enough, the fish are sustainable enough, and doggone it, we like you!

Fish are flown on ice in boxes inside these large metal containers, called LD3s.  Bet you didn't know that you may have been sitting on top of fish last time you flew!

      Also, I would prefer that ALL of my fish be sliced into sashimi pieces, as I do not have the appropriate cutlery to do it right. Thanks again.

      I am unable to pickup my fish at the party. The notice was very short.
      Can I pickup over the weekend?
      Thanks.

      I really wish I could go to the party. Delivery 2/18 is better for me.
      When was the party date finalized? I would have liked someone to contact me because I know it was supposed to be in Dec.

      either date is fine with me for delivery

      Hi I contributed Pledged $75 or more for:

      "Early birds, you get to stock up in San Francisco! Come by and pickup 10 packs of sashimi. Pick it up in San Francisco in early December 2014. Go Giants!!
      Estimated delivery: Dec 2014"

      Do I still have the option to get my order shipped or do I need to attend the party? If the latter do I need a ticket or will my plus 1 and I be on a list?

      Thank you!

      How do you want us to respond? I "responded" to the email but it's a no-reply address. I had selected pickup - does this mean I also have to purchase a ticket to the party?
