Starting next week at Maritime Gloucester, there will be a series of free public lectures through the month of March, ending with a restaurant crawl to various seafood eateries in the Gloucester area.
Seafood is a huge part of my diet, so I've been very interested in the reports about fish being mislabeled. It's a huge concern along with the issue of overfishing, trying to eat sustainable fish and seafood that is low in mercury.
The topics for the lectures will be on the future of fishing and seafood, sustainability, and seafood fraud. Turner's Seafood is sponsoring the series. See the list of lectures below.
