Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming Niaz Dorry, Coordinating Director of the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance as a guest speaker for our Earth month programming. Niaz shared with our community tips and tricks for sourcing seafood sustainably, and for supporting local communities that are dependent on the fishing industry for their livelihoods. Her advice? Look for fish that is in season and ideally is caught locally!

If you’re interested in learning more, you can look at the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance’s site or at the Local Catch Network. You can also access the seasonality chart from Massachusetts Department of Fish and Game that is now available on our Earth Month page.
