Sustainable Seafood Potluck

This in from Slow Food Seacoast (for those seafood fans!):

Slow Food Seacoast will be hosting a public potluck supper on March 7th. Bring a dish to share and your own reusable dinnerware, and share in a feast created by the whole group.  Dinner is at 5:30 pm.  At 6:30 pm, after the meal, Erika Zollett, a marine scientist in fisheries management as well as proprietor of the sustainability consulting business Green My Restaurant, will be speaking on the topic of Sustainable Seafood. Discussion about seafood that’s both sustainable and slow will follow!

For those who’d like to prepare a seafood dish with a view toward sustainable sourcing, Erika has a few recommendations. “For fish that qualify as both sustainable and somewhat local, I would suggest Gulf of Maine shrimp, farmed mussels, clams (farmed is better), farmed scallops, or line-caught haddock.” She says. She also invites everyone to have a look at Seafood Watch, a site created by the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The potluck will take place at Stoodley’s Tavern, on 17 Hancock Street, Portsmouth, NH.  Please park in the Strawbery Banke Main Visitor Parking Lot at 14 Hancock Street (or along Hancock Street itself).  From the parking lot, cross the street diagonally and to right to “Stoodley’s Tavern Education Center” at 17 Hancock Street. Go up the stairs, and jiggle the old door latch until it opens!
