Community Stuff 1/11/13
I’ve seen the flyer for the Northeast Seafood Coalition/Cape Ann Brewing Co. beer and local seafood dinner on GMG, but wanted to provide more information for readers.
The Northeast Seafood Coalition is a non-profit organization based in Gloucester that represents groundfish fishermen in New England on policy and regulatory matters. We’re celebrating less popular (but very delicious) fish that’s caught locally and is sustainable.
The Cape Ann Brewing Co. and the Northeast Seafood Coalition are teaming up on January 15 at 6:30pm to host an evening filled with local flavors. We’re excited to offer a five course meal and each course paired with one of Cape Ann Brewing Co.’s fishermen’s brews. Plus fisherman and musician Paul “Sasquatch” Cohan will perform!
Now is a very important time to support local fishermen and NSC! The fish will be caught by local fishermen, and generously donated by Cape Ann Seafood Exchange. All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Northeast Seafood Coalition, which will help NSC continue in our effort to find creative solutions that work to rebuild fish stocks while preserving family-owned fishing businesses, a diverse groundfish fleet and fishing communities across the Northeast.
Tickets for the 5-course meal are $50.00 and can be purchased by visiting the Cape Ann Brewing Co. or calling the NSC office at (978) 283-9992. We can’t wait to see everyone there!
Have a great vacation!
