Fresh Catch! The 100 Nautical Mile Seafood Diet


CURRA (Community-University Research for Recovery Alliance) has proposed an aquatic spin on eating locally, the 100 mile nautical diet; encouraging you to enjoy the variety and value of seafood available off the coasts of Newfoundland and Labrador. Restaurants and home cooks are showing renewed interest in what our waters have to offer and CURRA's new video is a great place to start learning more. CURRA's "The 100 Nautical Mile Seafood Diet is a short video, directed by Anne Troake, that promotes dialogue about ways to build a diet heavily reliant on food from the sea around Newfoundland and Labrador, including both traditional and contemporary uses."  We hope this video will inspire you to seek out new places to buy local seafood, to try new recipes using traditional or new-to-you catches, and to get involved in the recreational fishery personally if you want to get as close to the source as possible. Visit the CURRA website and our Sustainable Seafood page for more interesting resources.
