Paul Greenberg: Saving Local Seafood

Civics

The United States controls more ocean than any other country, yet ninety-one percent of seafood eaten in America is imported. Additionally, American fishermen catch more fish than Americans could ever possibly eat, but we continue to export it — more and more often to Asia. New York Times bestselling author Paul Greenberg’s latest book tracks the story of our modern consumption, environmental barriers to its production, and how to relocalize our eating habits. In American Catch: The Fight for Our Local Seafood, he travels the country searching for the origins of marine dishes — and answers to why we’re shipping it all overseas. At a time when “sustainability of our oceans is a growing global priority,” Greenberg says there’s still hope to reverse course and regain control of our seafood. Greenberg is a regular contributor to The New York Times and the author of Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food (2010).

There will be a post-event reception with Alaskan salmon bites.

Presented by:Town Hall in partnership with Chefs Collaborative and Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association, as part of the Civics series and Town Green sub series, presented with The Peach Foundation, Wyncote Foundation NW, and Elliott Bay Book Company. Series supported by The Boeing Company, the RealNetworks Foundation, and the True-Brown Foundation. Series media sponsorship provided by The Stranger and KUOW.
Tickets: $5.
