Let’s Talk Fish: Screening of The Breach & Q&A

Thursday August 6th  at 6:00pm

Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists 

1924 Cedar St @ Bonita, Berkeley, California 94709

Join Slow Food East Bay and Transition Berkeley for an evening delving into the predicaments surrounding fish, fishing and the health of the oceans.

How can we both support those that make their livelihood from the ocean AND the ocean’s fish populations? How can we be educated and inquisitive consumers of seafood, asking the right questions about sourcing, distribution and health? Join us in the conversation to try to find answers to these questions and more.

We’ll start at 6pm with a potluck dinner (true to Slow Food USA values!) then watch newly released documentary The Breach about salmon populations in the northwest.

The evening will come to a point with a Q&A with Natasha Benjamin of Marine Applied Research & Exploration discussing habitat restoration and Kirk Lombard of Sea Forager talking about the choices consumers have and the questions we should be asking of our vendors.

Minimum $5 donation at the door to help pay for venue and screening fees, though no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
