For decades, fish at school mostly meant one thing: breaded fingers and
patties–tasty enough with ketchup, but completely detached from their
natural origins. That’s beginning to change in regions with access to
local fisheries and processors. There’s keen interest in New England
districts with strong local procurement programs and cultural affinity
for seafood. Learn how a New Bedford processor is creating new
opportunities for the sustainably managed Gulf of Maine fishery, with
fresh-frozen products for K-12 that are affordable, kid-friendly, and
completely recognizable as fish. This program was brought to you by Cain Vineyard and Winery.
