According to Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council, 75% of all seafood served in Hawaii is flown or shipped here from the Mainland or other countries. With the demand of our residents and visitors and the limitations of our local fisheries, how can we achieve a higher degree of sustainability on our seafood consumption?

Learn how to rate the sustainability of the seafood available to you, and find out about plans for a fish farming operation off Maui's coast and the power and responsibility of the consumer in making sustainable seafood choices at a free panel discussion featuring Sheila Bowman, Sr. Manager of Outreach and Education, Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program; Don Wakamatsu of Whole Foods; and Chad Yokouchi of Maui Fresh Fish (open ocean aquaculture project).

Ask questions and get answers, pick up free recipes for sustainable seafood, get free Seafood Watch and Sushi pocket guides and enjoy free refreshments. Submit questions to the panel via email to merrill@pacificwhale.org.

Hosted by Pacific Whale Foundation at Pacific Whale Foundation's Discovery Center, at the lower level of the Ma'alaea Harbor Shops off Route 30, Honoapi'ilani Highway in Ma'alaea, next to Maui Ocean Center. 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. Free and open to all. For information, please call the Education Department at Pacific Whale Foundation at (808) 856-8322.
