Voices of the Gulf of Maine: The Restaurant

Voices of the Gulf of Maine | Jun 14, 2016

This installment of our "Voices of the Gulf of Maine" video series focuses on how the Gulf of Maine supports restaurants.

The cold, clean waters of the Gulf of Maine produce some of the best seafood in the world. Fine dining restaurants like Portland's own Five Fifty-Five know that fresh, local fish is crucial to their success.

We're proud to call Five Fifty-Five one of our Culinary Partners — restaurants that are committed to promoting responsibly harvested Gulf of Maine seafood on their menus at all times.

In this video, you'll hear how excited our Culinary Partners are to serve delicious local seafood to their diners while also supporting our regional fishing economy.

As executive chef and co-proprietor Steve Corry says, "These fishermen are our neighbors, our friends, our patrons. To support them just makes great sense and gives us a very good feeling of community at the same time.”

As these individuals share their passion for the ocean and connection to GMRI, we invite you to reflect as well.
