Eating with the Ecosystem Fundraiser
October 6, 2013
5:00 - 7:00 PM
Newport, Rhode Island

From the site:
"Eating with the Ecosystem is an educational effort to design and promote a place-based approach to sustainable seafood for New England.
By fusing the ecological knowledge of marine scientists and commercial fishermen with the culinary creativity of the region’s most innovative chefs, the project advances a dining paradigm that channels a deep understanding of the special places in the ocean that produce the seafood we enjoy."

To advance their mission, Eating with the Ecosystem is holding their first-ever fundraiser. Proceeds support their efforts to connect local commercial fishermen, scientists, chefs and eaters.

"The event will take place aboard the Schooner Aurora out of Newport RI. We'll be joined by past and future Eating with the Ecosystem guest speakers. Share a cocktail with Rhode Island's most forward-thinking fishermen and marine scientists! Learn about how climate change is affecting our regional oceans, what a sea robin tastes like, and what it takes to keep our fishing industry going for the future -- all while you enjoy a sunset cruise of the Bay, feast on local Southern New England seafood, and support one of your favorite causes"

I saw Sarah Schumann speak at TEDx Providence earlier this year, and it was fascinating to learn about the program.
