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.

This year marks the second annual Seafood 101 program. The 2014 progam celebrates the Centennial of the Port of Seattle’s Fishermen’s Terminal and kicks off with the Fishermen’s Fall Festival on Oct. 4. Events continue during National Seafood Month in October, and will culminate with Pacific Marine Expo, Nov. 19-21.
