Founder, Mermaid's Garden Sustainable Seafood

‘As eaters, many things determine what we eat.  We want food that is delicious.  We want food that is safe—for our bodies and for the environment.  Increasingly, we want to know the provenance of our food, and its path from that source to our plates.  If you work with food, you want this not just for yourself, but for your customers as well. If you work with seafood, all of these desires become of vital importance, as the health of our business and coastal communities is tied to the health of our water based planet. Shared ocean planning supports our endeavors as business people, citizens and happy eaters.’
