Scaling Local Fish: The Hidden Power of Institutional Dining Services

Sea State Lectures
7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Join us for the fourth session of our Winter/Spring 2018 Joan M. Kelly Sea State Lecture Series, "Six Women Changing Seafood."

Throughout the series, we'll introduce six innovative women, representing different parts of the seafood supply chain. Every month, you'll hear how each speaker is breaking new ground in the industry.

In April, we'll hear from Kyle Foley, Sustainable Seafood Program Manager, with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. She will share her talk titled "Scaling Local Fish: The Hidden Power of Institutional Dining Services." College dining halls, middle school cafeterias, and patient menus at hospitals might not be top of mind as great sources for local seafood. Yet these institutions represent real opportunities for what today’s fishermen are catching here in New England. Kyle will discuss why the local fishing industry needs customers like these, and how GMRI’s seafood program partners with institutions to have an impact on the longevity of our fishing communities.
