'Smart Seafood' discussion at the Baltimore Book Festival - 9/24/2016

Had a great time moderating the 'smart seafood' discussion this afternoon with 'Chesapeake Champions' Patrick Hudson, chef John Shields and chef Spike Gjerde. We focused our discussion on how purchasing local seafood supports local economies and how the decisions of the individual consumer can have a positive impact on the communities that depend on the resources of the Chesapeake Bay. 

A special thanks to Tj Tate, the National Aquarium and the Baltimore Book Festival for hosting the event, Gertrude's RestaurantWoodberry Kitchen and True Chesapeake Oyster Co. for providing the local seafood dishes for the crowd to sample.
