Sustainable seafood lecture at the Aquarium of the Pacific

September 23, 2009 |  6:11 pm


Join Andrew Gruel and Dave Anderson (Gruel is the manager and Anderson is the sustainable seafood officer for the Aquarium of the Pacific's Seafood for the Future program) for an enlightening discussion called "Sustainable seafood: good for your health and good for the planet."

The two will be joined by a panel of experts, including Times Food columnist and editor Russ Parsons and Providence chef Michael Cimarusti, to talk about how to make the correct decisions when it comes to eating from the sea. The talk will revolve around subjects crucial to the future of the planet (and your access to tasty seafood), including the impact of overfishing and the carbon footprint left by the fishing industry. The role of aquaculture in meeting the increasing demand for seafood will also be discussed.

Most importantly, you'll learn about what you can do to shop and eat with sustainability in mind.

Aquarium of the Pacific, 100 Aquarium Way, Long Beach, 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24. $8. (562) 590-3100, ext. 0. www.aquariumofpacific.org.
