On July 27, the Boston Fisheries Foundation will host the 3rd Annual Boston Seafood Festival from 11am-6pm on the historic Boston Fish Pier. This fun an interactive event is a celebration created by the Boston Fisheries Foundation designed to enrich the cultural, economic & social vitality of Boston by promoting all aspects of the local seafood economy.
The Boston Fisheries Foundation is a relatively new not-for-profit that was launched with the following goals:
-Support and expand sustainable fisheries, which in turn sustain the New England economy;
-Educate the media and the public about the role played by fishermen in preserving our wild ocean stocks through responsible harvesting and management;
-Educate the media and the public about the benefits of sustainably harvested seafood as high-quality nutrition whose production protects the environment from deforestation, global warming, and other negative impacts;
-Facilitate public awareness of our history and the importance of wild harvests to the proud traditions of an independent New England; and,
-Develop a Maritime Fisheries Museum to honor our heritage.
