Food for thought: Did you know more than 90% of the seafood Americans eat is imported? Most of the seafood we eat comes from somewhere else, and it's typically cheap farmed tilapia, salmon, and shrimp. What's more, almost one-third of the fish we catch here is exported, high-value wild species. Our backwards seafood system threatens wild fisheries and fishing communities.

The role of the chef in sustainable seafood: Chefs and food professionals have enormous buying power, and this power means that what chefs and food professionals choose to buy for their restaurants and businesses can shift demand for products, open new markets, and influence consumers. Through collective purchasing decisions, chefs and food professionals have the power to help build a strong demand for a better seafood system, and shape the way that seafood is consumed in the U.S.



Proceeds benefit Chefs Collaborative, and a portion of your ticket is tax deductible.
