Event Details

Have you ever been confused about how to buy seafood sustainably? Do the Monterey Bay Aquarium pocket guides tell us everything we need to know? Where did my sushi come from?

Greg Mayor honed his seafood skills on the docks of New England working for East Coast Seafood, a live lobster company, in various positions spanning 17 years as well as the globe. He also worked for the prestigious restaurant group Legal Sea Foods as their auction buyer. Upon moving to San Francisco, Greg opened EcoPawz, a raw food company with a strong commitment to sustainable seafood.

This short seminar will be of interest to anyone who consumes seafood and fish products. This is an excellent presentation he’s done many times in the past to professional chefs/restaurant professionals and a great opportunity for anyone who’s ever wondered where exactly fish comes from.

The event will be open to the public for a fee of $5. Sustainable seafood refreshments will be provided.

Topics will include:

• Historical significance of seafood
• Present day seafood industry: logistics and distribution
• Seafood and the media
• Contaminants and the current prevailing nutritional guidelines
• Fish categories and migratory ranges
• Local fish species and availability
• Aquaculture and it’s growing impact on global health
• Fishing methods
• What to look for when buying seafood
• The real deal with fish oils
• Q&A
