PACIFIC WHALE FOUNDATION TO HOST FREE PANEL DISCUSSION: “POLE OR PLANE? SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD IN HAWAI'I”

MA’ALAEA, MAUI, HI -- 75% of all seafood consumed in Hawai'i is flown or shipped here from the U.S. Mainland or other countries, reports the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council. Is it possible to achieve a higher degree of sustainability in Hawaii on our seafood consumption? What are capabilities of our local fisheries -- and can they meet the demand of our residents and visitors?

To help answer those questions, Pacific Whale Foundation will host a panel discussion titled "Pole or Plane? Sustainable Seafood in Hawai'i" on Thursday, November 17 from 6;00 pm to 7:30 pm at its Discovery Center in Ma'alaea. The evening will help consumer learn to rate the sustainability of the seafood available to them, and to find out about plans for a fish farming operation off Maui’s coast. The presentation is free and open to all.

The presenters will include Sheila Bowman, Senior Manager of Outreach and Education, Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program; Donn Wakamatsu of Whole Foods; and Chad Yokouchi of Maui Fresh Fish (Maui's open ocean aquaculture project).

Questions for the panel may be submitted in advance by writing to merrillkaufman@pacificwhale.org
