Recap: #3pChat on Sustainable Seafood

3931139398_45a91aa9fd_z On Thursday, May 8, we hosted a series-focused Tweet Jam, which was one of our highest-impact, and most well-attended online chats to date. If you haven’t yet seen our ongoing sustainable seafood series, please check it out.

Our sponsors Future of Fish, Bell AquacultureVerlasso Salmon, Fish Choice and Seafood Watch, along with TriplePundit’s writing staff, have been contributing their insights on the subject, and this Twitter Chat allowed us to expand upon and explore the issues in more detail.

Participating organizations included Oceana, Ocean Conservancy, Environmental Defense Fund, Blue Ocean Institute, BlueYou Consulting, Upwell, Sea to Table, Chefs Collaborative, The Terramar Project, and numerous others. Our four distinguished panelists were:

  • George H. Leonard – Chief Scientist, Ocean Conservancy – @GeorgeHLeonard
  • Tim Fitzgerald – Environmental Defense Fund Oceans Program, Senior Advisor – @hawaiifitz 
  • Jason Simas – iPura Foods, Director of Communications – @iPura
  • Clare Leschin-Hoar – Independent Food Writer / Journalist – @c_leschin 

Instead of sharing a recap of the larger conversation, we’ve decided to narrow this Storify down to “further reading” links shared in the chat for your continued learning. To see the full conversation, please follow the #3pChat hashtag on Twitter.
