How many of us really think about the fish we eat and where it comes from? Like oil and water, the ocean is a finite resource. 53% of the fish consumed now is farmed in order to comply with sustainable practices. For many years, a large network of seafood suppliers, distributors and retailers (including restaurants) have been thinking about the future of fish and want you to think about it also.
The Cabrillo Marine Aquarium and Friends bring you the Sustainable Seafood Expo from 12-5pm on October 2nd at CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles. Sample seafood, including species you may not be familiar with, see chef demonstrations, and learn about how the fish you eat should be caught or farmed and how your choices at the fish market or restaurants can lessen the burden on our oceans.
Keynote speaker Adrian Grenier of “Entourage” — and co-founder of the Lonely Whale Foundation — will be in attendance. If you haven’t been to CRAFTED in San Pedro yet, you are in for a treat – it’s a weekend handmade marketplace in a restored 1940s warehouse, home to more than 100 artists and their wide array of wares. $30 for aquarium members, $40 General Admission.
