Know Your Fish Dinner

Thursday, October 27, 2016, 6:00 PM

At a time when 90% of the seafood eaten in the US is imported, knowing where your seafood comes from, how and when it was harvested, and whether it’s local is now more important than ever.   Come dine on delicious seafood caught that day on rod and reel by Capt. Tim Rider aboard the F/V Finlander out of Eliot, and prepared by chefs Evan Mallett of Black Trumpet in Portsmouth and Brendan Vesey of Joinery in Newmarket.  

Hear why Capt. Rider motors up to 80 miles offshore to jig fish for groundfish, or why fishmonger Spencer Montgomery of Dole and Bailey sells invasive European green crabs to restaurants.   Learn about the changing landscape for domestic and global seafood from One Fish Foundation’s Colles Stowell, and why choosing local, sustainable seafood matters. Test your sustainable seafood knowledge in a fun trivia contest to win an Isles of Shoals cruise with Capt. Tim Rider aboard the F/V Finlander. Proceeds to benefit One Fish Foundation and Chef's Collaborative Good Food Fund.

Tickets can be purchased online.
