Sea State Lectures
5:30 pm to 7:15 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, our staff and seafood partners will share success stories from businesses that are empowering consumers to choose seafood they can feel good about.
On Wednesday, April 1st, Justin Turner, Seafood Category Manager, and Nathan Jewell, Assistant Seafood Category Manager of Hannaford, will join GMRI Sustainable Seafood Program Manager Kyle Foley to provide a look behind the scenes at Hannaford’s efforts to provide sustainable and local seafood. GMRI and Hannaford Supermarkets have a history of working collaboratively to achieve a robust and credible local seafood program, as well as responsible seafood from around the globe. If you’ve ever found yourself confused about how to make a responsible seafood purchase at the grocery store, this is a great opportunity to ask questions and learn from the experts.
Guests will have an opportunity to connect and enjoy complimentary beverages during a brief reception starting at 5:30.
