FISHING FOR SUSTAINABILITY

Sunday, April 29, 2012

On April 29th, the New England Aquarium Sustainable Seafood Program is co-presenting Boston’s first ever Sustainable Seafood Teach-In!  The New England Aquarium is teaming up with the Museum of Science, Chef’s Collaborative, Let’s Talk About Food, and the Harvard Center for Health and the Global Environment for an all day event as part of the Cambridge Science Festival.

The event features keynotes from Paul Greenberg and Barton Seaver, panel discussions with representatives from all parts of the seafood industry, and one-on-one interactions with experts of every kind (including the Aquarium’s own Jason Clermont, Wild-Capture Fisheries Specialist!)

This is going to be a great event for anyone who wants to better understand how the seafood on their plate is affecting the oceans, fishermen and our local seafood economy.

You can see more details, and register for the event, here.
