Sea State Series: Sustainable Seafood in the Gulf of Maine

Jan22
Sea State Lectures
Time:
5:30 pm to 7:00 pm

When it comes to seafood, making the right choices can seem complicated. We’re here to give you some simple solutions to make good choices, buy more seafood, and support our coastal communities.

Join us this winter for a new Sea State series in which we’ll discuss how you can support a healthy Gulf of Maine ecosystem and economy by choosing and eating more local seafood. Over the course of three repeat sessions (beginning January 22), our staff and seafood partners will share success stories from businesses that are empowering consumers to choose seafood they can feel good about.

On January 22nd, Kate Masury, program director at Eating with the Ecosystem, will join GMRI Sustainable Seafood Program Manager Kyle Foley to present findings from an innovative research effort called the Eat Like a Fish citizen science project. The project shows that although over a hundred wild species of seafood thrive in the salty waters off New England’s shores, most of them are difficult to find for sale at local seafood counters.

Guests will have an opportunity to connect and enjoy complimentary beverages during a brief reception starting at 5:30.
