The Return of the Groundfish!
Broadcast on 2014/11/01 (PT)
Sheila Bowman, Seafood Watch Manager of Culinary and Strategic Initiatives
There is GREAT news from the oceans! Declared a federal disaster in 2000, west coast groundfish are now rated best choices or good alternatives by Monterey Bay Aquarium! Join us to hear from Sheila Bowman how and why 21 species of West Coast groundfish – including sablefish, rockfish typically sold as “snapper” and popular flatfish species caught bottom trawl and other methods are now healthy and back due to improvements in management, gear, habitat protection and recovery of over-fished species. It is the most dramatic turnaround to date, and reflects significant improvements in federal fishery management to restore these economically important fisheries in California, Oregon and Washington. Fish lovers, ocean lovers, planet lovers, join us! This show sponsored by Chapman Tucson.
