Mike McDermid, Program Manager of Ocean Wise and Chef Robert Clark of [C] Restaurant will join us for this evening’s discussion of the provenance of seafood. The importance of understanding where seafood is caught and harvested and overall impacts on our oceans will be discussed. Enjoy sustainable seafood hors d’oeuvres prepared by Chef Robert Clark and fish-friendly wines.
Tonight’s discussion will help guests make mindful choices when shopping for seafood and they leave with a copy of “Sea Sick: The Global Ocean Crisis” by Alanna Mitchell.
