The event was held on November 16th and sponsored by the Berry Good Food Foundation. It featured Nationally prominent chefs, fishermen, academics, and activists will address the impact our seafood choices have on the long-term vitality of harvested seafood and the well-being of the oceans.

    The panelists were:

    Tommy Gomes is a fishmonger at Catalina Offshore Products. He is a native San Diegan whose Portuguese family settled here in 1892. His experience working tuna fleets going in and out of San Diego has given him a deep knowledge of the industry and he’s become a leading voice in seafood education. Among his involvements, Tommy oversees COP’s nonprofit dining series, Collaboration Kitchen; participates in children’s fishing and culinary programs; and is an outspoken player in the Marine Life Protection Act initiatives. In 2011 he was on the list of San Diego Magazine’s “50 People to Watch in 2011.”

    Sarah Rathbone is a co-founder of Dock to Dish LA and director of operations. She grew up on the shores of Cape Cod, where she developed her initial love of and fascination with everything marine. After working with commercial fishermen to collect data for her master’s thesis, she took to the high seas aboard a commercial lobster boat, the FV March Gale, as full-time crew. After realizing the expansive and unnecessary gap between the people who catch the fish and the people who love to eat it, she co-founded Community Seafood of Santa Barbara to bring fish directly from the fishermen to her local consumer community. This program has evolved into her current partnership with Dock to Dish, which is the first Restaurant Supported Fishery in the U.S. Through Dock to Dish, Rathbone connects top chef members in Los Angeles to their local sustainable fishermen, providing complete trace-ability and the best seafood available within 24 hours of it hitting the dock.
