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 and meet a set of values that include social, economic, environmental, and food justice. 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 fishmonger, fisherman, or chef.

The Boston Local Food Festival Seafood Throwdown is hosted by the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA).  NAMA is a fishermen-led organization building a broad movement toward healthy fisheries and fishing communities.They build deep and trusting relationships with community based fisherman, crew, fishworkers and allies to create effective policy and market strategies. NAMA advocates for policies that advance social, economic, and environmental justice throughout the entire seafood value chain and ensures seafood access to all communities regardless of income, race, geography, or culture. NAMA piloted the Seafood Throwdown event in 2008as an educational and community driven activity that promotes the ecological and economic benefits of locally caught seafood and puts the public in touch with those who put seafood on our tables.
