Aquarium Talk about Sustainable Seafood on April 5

Learn Which Seafood to Eat and Which to Avoid

April 3, 2014

ABQ BioPark Education presents its next Brown Bag Seminar, Marine Conservation You Can Taste: How Smart Seafood Choices Help Save Marine Life, on April 3 and 5, 12:45-1:30 p.m. in the Aquarium Education Building. No admission is required.

Tallie Segel, Aquarium Education Coordinator, has been teaching about the Seafood watch program for five years. Join her to learn about how our everyday choices affect ocean conservation.

“This mini-workshop on sustainable seafood is a great follow-up to last week’s celebration marine mammals at the Aquarium,” said Segel. “Everyone knows to look for ‘dolphin-safe’ tuna, but there many other ways to support environmentally-responsible fishing practices. People will be able to leave this brown bag with the resources they need to take immediate action.”

Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program follows the science around fisheries and ocean conservation closely and provides regular updates to their mobile app and paper pocket guide.

“We also hope people will mark their calendars for Rock the Boat Sustainable Seafood Festival on June 5. It will be marine conservation that is delicious to eat,” said Segel. Seafood Festival tickets go on sale at the end of the month.
