You Are Invited to the Smithsonian’s Sustainable Seafood Dinner June 7

Sant Ocean Hall

What: I would be so pleased if you would join me and a host of experts and chefs for a unique educational and savory experience. The Smithsonian’s Ocean Initiative is a dynamic and engaging program spreading the message of ocean science, awareness and stewardship. Tonight’s dinner will expose you to delicious – but sustainable – seafood, and exhibitors (including me) who will teach you… How do you know the seafood you buy is safe? How is it tested? Has it been labeled accurately? How can your choices ensure a sustainable supply of healthy seafood in the future?

When: Thursday, June 7, 2012, at 7 pm

Where: National Museum of Natural History
