Massachusetts School District Signs on to Local Seafood

Jul 14, 2015

Associated Press: A Massachusetts public school system is the first school district to sign on to a Maine science institute's seafood certification system.

A spokesman for Gulf of Maine Research Institute in Portland, Maine, announced the partnership with the Chicopee district on Tuesday. The institute says the agreement means the district's 7,800 students will be able to eat seafood that is responsibly harvested and traceable to the Gulf of Maine.
