In recent years there has been a huge move to connect commercial fishermen with consumers, which helps the fishermen make more money and the consumer to get fresher, better fish and seafood. I talk with Natalie Sattler of Alaskans Own, a community supported fishery in Alaska, and Jeffrey Tedmori of E-Fish, which acts as a broker to connect small, dayboat fishermen with customers via express mail order fish. Topics include why seek out such a market, how to find one, what are the advantages and disadvantages, and where the sea to table industry is headed.
Tommy Gomes has been in the fish business for a generation, and he knows all about how to source, select, buy, and store fish and seafood. We go into detail about how you can master the market, as well as talk about the largely unknown treasure that is the Southern California commercial fishery.
