Fish Tales: Seafood in Oregon

Wednesday, January 10, 2018

Jennifer Burns Bright talks about traditions and challenges.

Oregonians love local food, but finding truly local fish can be hard, even on the coast. People have become aware of concerns regarding ethically grown meat and vegetables, but seafood remains somewhat mysterious. How does that crab get from the ocean to our table, and what’s the true cost of cheap salmon at the grocery store?

Learn more and discuss these issues with Jennifer Burns Bright as part of Oregon Humanities’ Conversation Project. She is a food and travel writer based who moved to the coast to write about seafood after many years teaching food studies and literature at the University of Oregon. She is also a Master Food Preserver and community organizer linking local producers and consumers.
