FISHERMEN as the "new" food celebrities
American fisheries are among the most sustainable in the world. Yet, American's consume less than two pounds of U.S. wild caught or harvested fish each year. Good Catch encourages consumers to cook and eat more sustainable American seafood. Just as local farmers are part of the mainstream conversations, American fishermen are poised to be the next food celebrities.
TURNING THE TIDE ON SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD
Good Catch is a national television series, website, social media platform, consumer information and educational outreach campaign to promote and celebrate sustainable seafood.
Working in cooperation with fishing communities, NGO's, retailers, distributors, aquariums, and all sectors of the fishing community, Good Catch is working as a catalyst to bring consumer understanding and support for sustainable seafood.
MAKING WAVES FOR THE NEXT FOOD MOVEMENT
Good Catch is intended to promote widespread awareness of sustainable fisheries issues, tell the stories of America’s fishermen and fish farmers, generate a national dialogue on sustainable seafood, and empower consumers to confidently purchase, cook and consume sustainable seafood.
Good Catch marks the beginning to a broad national movement to promote sustainable seafood. At the center of the movement are the stories of America’s dedicated fishermen and fish farmers.
