This week on Food Talk with Mike Colameco, Mike talks seafood. Kerry Heffernan joins us in the studio to tell us about the trends in which fish are being caught, and how many fisherman are finding loopholes around fishing laws. Later, Mike talks to Lou Rozzo of F. Rozzo and Sons about what it’s like to supply fish for hundreds of restaurants across New York City. This program has been sponsored by Cento, King Arthur, and Colavita. Thanks to Brothers NYC for today’s music.
