Event: Supporting Sustainable Fisheries

Portsmouth, NHOn December 15th, the Gundalow Company will host a moderated panel discussion that will include Bob Campbell of Yankee Fisherman’s Cooperative; Will Carey from Little Bay Oyster Company; Carolyn Eastman of Eastman’s Fish Market; Ken LaValley from UNH Cooperative Extension; Sara Zoe Patterson of Seacoast Eat Local; and Roger Woodman, a commercial fisherman using 19th Century methods.

Panelists will discuss what current issues face our local fisheries, how their organizations are addressing these challenges and what consumers can do to ensure the long term health of our fisheries. The program is the last in the four part Contemporary Coastal Issues series that has been examining local water quality issues and exploring ways we can all reduce our impact on our local watershed.

Contemporary Coastal Issues programs are funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management under the Coastal Zone Management Act in conjunction with the NH Coastal Program and NH DES.

Hope to see you there!
