What We Do
Our work fuses together the ecological knowledge of marine scientists and commercial fishermen, with the culinary creativity of the regions most innovative chefs, to support our marine ecosystems and promote the wild seafood they produce.
Seafood is a subject area that overlaps many different disciplines from food systems work, to ecosystem and fisheries science, to economics in the marketplace, to culinary arts, and of course fisheries themselves. Because of seafood's interdisciplinary nature, our work must also cross all these disciplines in order to achieve our vision of transforming New England’s seafood marketplace into a support system for its local marine ecosystems and the people who depend on them.
As a small organization we overcome the limits of our small size by engaging in extensive partnerships and collaborations. We work with members of all parts of our seafood supply chains and bridge the gap between ecosystem scientists and food systems thinkers to integrate a place-based approach to sustaining wild seafood into our New England food system.
Our programming includes a combination of educational events, citizen science research, collaborative research with fisheries ecologists and economists, and awareness-raising through print, web, and signage work.
