Fish Tales

Join us for a free discussion about fishing and seafood in Oregon!

Oregonians love local food, but finding truly local fish can be hard, even on the coast. We’re now much more aware of 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?

This is the focus of “Fish Tales: Traditions and Challenges of Seafood in Oregon,” a free conversation with Jennifer Burns Bright.

This program is hosted by the Newport Public Library and sponsored by Oregon Humanities, with additional support from The Whaler Motel.

 

Bright is a food and travel writer based in Port Orford, Oregon. She holds a PhD from the University of California at Irvine and a Master Food Preserver certification. When she's not out gathering seaweed or smoking black cod, she might be found judging culinary masterpieces or interviewing luminaries in the food world.

Oregon Humanities Through the Conversation Project, Oregon Humanities offers free programs that engage community members in thoughtful, challenging conversations about ideas critical to our daily lives and our state's future.
