Local seafood worth celebrating!

In early April, our lab filled to capacity once again for our third annual Seafood Celebration. Attendees enjoyed Gulf of Maine seafood prepared by some of the region’s best chefs. Several of our Culinary Partner restaurants were on hand, serving dishes featuring local species such as dogfish, redfish, hake, pollock, mackerel, and scallops.

“Serving fresh seafood from the Gulf of Maine is a delicious way to support sustainability and our local fishing industry,” said Steve Sicinski, Executive Chef of Sea Glass Restaurant at Inn by the Sea. “We are happy to participate in GMRI’s Seafood Celebration, which brings fishermen, chefs, and consumers together to better understand the vital role purchasing local seafood can have in a sustainable future.”
