As part of this year’s annual Cooking for Solutions event at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Bristol Bay Sockeye will be among the line-up of sustainable seafood featured.
A three-day long event, Cooking for Solutions brings together hundreds of chefs, food producers, media, and other food leaders from around the country to discuss and celebrate the latest challenges and successes in the sustainable seafood movement.
On Thursday May 15th, Chef Jeff Rogers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s culinary team will prepare Bristol Bay salmon appetizers for over 400 guests at the Meet the Chefs Reception. On Friday May 16th, the San Francisco-based sustainable sushi restaurant, Tataki, will delight over 2,800 guests at the Cooking for Solutions Gala with a special “Canape for Bristol Bay.”
“The fishermen we represent are truly honored to be featured at this year’s celebration of sustainable seafood. We take great pride in our sockeye salmon and look forward to sharing both our product and our story at this year’s event,” said Sue Aspelund, Executive Director of the Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association.
Bristol Bay, Alaska is home to the world’s largest sockeye salmon fishery, supplying nearly half of the world’s sockeye salmon supply. Every summer, tens of millions of wild salmon return to Bristol Bay. This summer, fishery managers predict a return of over 26 million sockeye.
The Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association (BBRSDA) represents Bristol Bay’s 1,850 commercial salmon driftnet fishermen. Find them at http://www.bristolbaysockeye.org and http://www.bbrsda.com.
