Fishstock/Seafood Throwdown

Fish Stock is the portion of the Boston Local Food Festival that highlights the fisher folk and the seafood that are local to New England. Brought to us by Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA), The Seafood Throwdown is the main event of Fish Stock! Two chefs will engage in a culinary battle of skill and creativity with the secret seafood ingredient.  The Throwdown will be immediately followed by a fillet demo presented by a local chef.

 

 

 

 

The Boston Local Food Festival Seafood Throwdown is hosted by the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA). The Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance works with coastal communities to protect our marine environment, strengthen local leadership, and give voice to independent, community based fishermen. NAMA advocates for policies that advance social, economic, and environmental justice throughout the entire seafood value chain. Also, NAMA piloted the Seafood Throwdown event, which is an educational and community driven activity that promotes the ecological and economic benefits of locally caught seafood.
