Seafood Savvy: Local Fish

January 13, 2015 from 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The fifth Seafood Savvy, a new series of quarterly educational events focusing on all aspects of Gulf seafood, will be held Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015, at the Windmill Market in downtown Fairhope, Alabama.

Seafood Savvy brings consumers together with the scientists, fishermen, processors and chefs who are experts about a particular species of Gulf seafood for a fun and informative evening. Each quarterly event focuses on a different species, with this installment focusing on locally caught fish!

The event will be free to the public in the hopes that anyone interested in learning more can attend and come away with a new appreciation and understanding of the bounty of our local waters.

Seafood can often be difficult to source, intimidating to prepare and challenging to catch. Seafood Savvy demystifies local aquatic creatures, one at a time. Our fifth event will focus on Gulf seafood with presentations by local chefs, fishermen, producers and more. Join the discussion with Susan Boggs of Reel Surprise Charters and SanRoc Cay Marina, Marine Biologist Dr. Bill Walton, Chef Markus Haeusler of Saltwater Grill at The Grand Hotel and more!

Seafood Savvy is organized and sponsored by the Windmill Market, Saltwater Grill, Alabama Cooperative Extension SystemAlabama Seafood Marketing Commission, Auburn University Marine Extension & Research Center and Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant.
