Friday the 13th Could be a Lucky Day – Join Webcast to Learn about Sustainable Seafood Choices

In another innovative move, the Seafood Watch team at the Monterey Bay Aquarium offers a video webcast to help consumers learn about making smart choices at the seafood counter. Tune in next Friday to participate (instructions/link below).

Having met Chef Dory Ford at the recent Sustainability conference Cooking for Solutions, I can tell you he’s a great chef, very approachable and obviously dedicated to educating the public about how delicious responsible seafood choices can be. One of the great things about the conference was the message that we are able to make a difference with every dollar we spend on seafood.

Here is Chef Ford after a demo in which he cooked with kids, chatting with Aquarium Executive Director Julie Packard.

Here is the information from the release I received today:

Seafood Watch – Make Choices for Healthy Oceans

Every day, you play a critical role in shaping the future of our oceans. By making smart seafood choices at the market and at restaurants, you can help keep our oceans healthy for generations to come.

Get the inside scoop on what seafood to savor and what fish to avoid by joining our online video webcast here.

Our experts, including Seafood Watch Outreach Manager Sheila Bowman, Executive Chef of the Aquarium’s Portola Cafe Dory Ford and host Ken Peterson will empower you to make sustainable seafood choices that are good for you and healthy for our oceans. And they’ll share some exquisite sustainable seafood recipes from the Aquarium’s annual Cooking for Solutions event.

During next Friday’s webcast, you’ll also learn how you can be an advocate for our oceans, both with your purchasing power and by sharing your seafood smarts with friends and family.

Our guests will answer your questions throughout the program. To participate, this link:

Register today for Seafood Watch – Make Choices for Healthy Oceans webcast, which will take place on Friday, June 13 at noon Pacific time.

With nearly 75 percent of the world’s fisheries either fully fished or overfished, choosing sustainable seafood is more important than ever before.

On Women and Work

Read my contributions to The Glass Hammer a new blog for executive women.


  1. Tales of the Cocktail may be over but the fun continues. Check the blogs and podcasts for all the news that fit to drink!
  2. The Maori art of facial tatooing is called moko. It is a powerful expression of tribal identity which has only recently enjoyed a resurgence as the colonial Christian prohibitions against it have lessened. Go to the Peabody Essex Museum for this rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of this amazing cultural tradition. The documentary I saw at Sundance years ago on moko, was one of the most powerful films I have ever seen.
  3. The Audubon Insectarium is a new and top-notch attraction in New Orleans. We passed by it and wondered why we'd missed it before. Turns out it's just now opening. No time this last trip, but it's on the list for the next time. Check here for info.

What's on my list?
