October is National Seafood Month! Join us for a discussion around the issues of marine environments and how we can begin to address problems through more sustainable procurement of seafood. A coastal city known for its cuisine, Charleston is at the heart of the issue of consumption of seafood. What problems do marine environments and economies currently face and how can we begin to address them? This discussion will center on how individuals and organizations can make more sustainable choices when planning menus, purchasing seafood, and getting further involved. Panelists include:

Shelley Dearhart, (Good Catch Manager , South Carolina Aquarium)
Drew Hedlund, (Executive Chef, Fleet Landing Restaurant & Bar)
Gorka Sancho Ph.D, (Professor, Department of Biology at the College of Charleston)

As always, panelists are encouraged to bring their own lunch, but light and locally sourced snacks from GrowFood Carolina will be provided.
