Registration is OPEN!

 

The Local Seafood Summit is a practitioner-centric event. It is for small- and mid-scale seafood harvesters and businesses who are interested in sharing experiential knowledge, learning strategies that make community supported fisheries and direct-marketing businesses successful, and collaborating to build a trustworthy, low-impact, domestic seafood supply system. The summit provides an opportunity for those interested in direct-marketing to learn from established businesses and connect directly with other resources in a network that supports good, clean, fair seafood.

    "Hi friends, my name is Feini Yin (they/them), and I recently joined the NAMA team as the new media coordinator. I’m writing to say hi and share a bit about myself! I live in Philly, which is ancestral Lenni Lenape territory. My path has been winding, and I’ve worked in journalism, marine ecology, and community organizing. I’m excited to integrate these varied experiences to support NAMA’s network and mission. "

  • Settle in with a cup of coffee (or something stronger) and check out the groundbreaking exposéHow Foreign Private Equity Hooked New England’s Fishing Industry. This report is not only validating to the fishing men and women who for decades warned decision makers of this inevitable result of privatization policies such as Catch Shares. But it is also providing a swell of momentum behind our national advocacy toward Catch Share reform and stopping the corporate takeover of the ocean. 

  • Our networks have been swimming with activity all year and there’s so much to look forward to. This month we invite you to learn about the Seaweed Commons and what the future of kelp aquaculture should look like. Plus, it’s not too late to register for the LCN Seafood Summit and join us in Alaska this October, FSNE’s Network Leadership Institute applications are open, and NESAWG’s RFPs are open for their November gathering!
