Baird Symposium: Seafood Sustainability


The 2011 Ronald C. Baird Sea Grant Science Symposium, “Developing the Rhode Island Seafood Knowledge Economy: Perspectives on Seafood Sustainability,” will take place June 26-28 in Providence. Scientists, seafood suppliers, and chefs will offer their perspectives on sourcing sustainable seafood, consumer preferences, and health topics, among others, and participants will get to prepare—and taste—sustainable seafood dishes under the guidance of expert chefs.  The symposium, sponsored by Johnson & Wales University, Rhode Island Sea Grant, URI, and Ronald C. Baird, is open to the public. Registration is $175, and includes all meals noted in the agenda. Space is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
