POSTED ON: Monday, March 27, 2017 5:01 PM by LCDR Tyler Scharar
As a Chef and leading expert on sustainable seafood, Mr. Barton Seaver visited with over 300 Midshipmen from the Department of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering. He is on a mission to restore our relationship with the ocean, the land, and with each other - through dinner. During the talk, Mr. Seaver tied the health of the ocean to both human health and major geo-political forces. As an author, he emphasizes solutions that rely on cooking with bycatch of species, serving conscious portion sizes, and shining a spotlight on healthy aquaculture practices.
Midshipmen left with a greater understanding of the role sustainable food practices have on the world stage and in our daily lives.
