Did you know there are more than 100 edible wild seafood species in our local waters?

Learn how our seafood choices can help sustain local fisheries with Kate Masury of Eating With The Ecosystem:“A Place Based Approach to Sustaining New England’s Wild Seafood” at 7 p.m., August 18th, BIMI’s third Tuesday Talk of the 2020 season.

Eating with the Ecosystem is a small nonprofit based in Rhode Island with a unique mission: to promote a place-based approach to sustaining New England’s wild seafood. By fusing together the ecological knowledge of marine scientists and commercial fishermen, the creativity of the region’s most innovative chefs, the know-how of seafood businesses, and the enthusiasm of local seafood lovers, we advance a New England seafood system that supports the region’s marine ecosystems and the people who depend on them.

Kate Masury is the program director at Eating with the Ecosystem, and coauthor of the cookbook, Simmering the Sea: Diversifying Cookery to Sustain Our Fisheries, as well as the recently published report, Eat Like a Fish: Diversifying New England’s Seafood Marketplace.

As always, BIMI’s Tuesday Talks are free, with donations appreciated (there is a DONATE button at the top right of the event page). Any amount to support our mission is greatly appreciated!
