Event Details

The American Heart Association recommends eating seafood twice a week to improve your heart health. But, with so many consumer options, selecting and preparing seafood for you and your family can seem a difficult task these days.  Wild Caught or Farmed? Local or Imported? Does fish need a stamp to be sustainable? Should I worry about mercury in my seafood? How many Omega 3's do I need in my diet? 

Join Pinellas County Family and Consumer Sciences Agent, along with Pinellas County Sea Grant Agent,  for an exciting class about local seafood products.

 What will you learn?

  • Different kinds of fresh seafood available locally
  • Why you should buy local seafood
  • Seasonality and availability of Florida seafood
  • Health benefits of eating seafood
  • How to prepare and cook seafood

The educational program will include hands-on cooking demonstrations.  Recommended for Adults of all ages.
