Seafood 101 is a public education program dedicated to teaching families about sourcing, cooking and eating healthy and sustainable seafood.
What does it mean for the commercial fishing industry?
Seafood 101 began with NOAA and evolved into an industry-supported program that helps to educate the public about U.S. fisheries. It's a marketing tool, as well.
The program, which launched in the Pacific Northwest and is in the development stages for other regions, is sponsored through a partnership between business, industry associations and government.To learn more, please visit the Pacific Northwest Seafood 101 website.
Do you often find yourself educating your friends, neighbors and customers about wild fish, how it's caught, how to find it, how to cook it and why it's so good to eat? Use the resources compiled at Seafood 101 as a tool to help spread the message about the sustainable and wild American fisheries. Or better yet, just send your customers to the site. They'll find recipes, cooking tips, nutritional information, local seafood cooking demonstrations and much more.
