Join us June 30th at 7:30PM for a talk and tasting featuring Paul Greenberg, author of Four Fish and American Catch.
The Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association (BBRSDA) and Chefs Collaborative are bringing Bristol Bay’s salmon and story to New York City for a rare Alaska salmon event. Guests will have a chance to enjoy fresh Bristol Bay sockeye salmon – flown in from the remote waters of Bristol Bay, Alaska - while New York Times bestselling author Paul Greenberg (Four Fish) discusses his newest book, “American Catch: The Fight for Our Local Seafood.”
In American Catch, Greenberg shows how we destroyed our food relationship with our oceans, and sets out to understand how that breach might be mended. To do so, he explores three quintessential American seafoods: the New York oyster, Gulf shrimp, and the Alaskan sockeye salmon.
Greenberg specifically highlights Bristol Bay, Alaska’s sockeye salmon fishery and investigates the proposed Pebble Mine project, which threatens the future health of Bristol Bay’s salmon. For the last ten years, commercial salmon fishermen, Alaska Native tribes, chefs, jewelers, and others have been fighting to save Bristol Bay’s salmon fishery from the Pebble Mine. In response to these requests, the Environmental Protection Agency is currently weighing protective measures under the Clean Water Act.
