The Network’s next online Waterside Chat is coming up soon! Join us on Wednesday, July 27, at 1:30 p.m. ET for a conversation with Jen Levin, president of True Fin, a sustainable-seafood supplier in Portland, Maine.
Jen Levin has dedicated her career to sustainable use of renewable resources. Before starting True Fin, she managed the Sustainable Seafood Program at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute, where she uncovered the untapped potential for high-end seafood from this region. Jen will chat with host Tom Sadler about that untapped potential, the challenges facing fishers in the Gulf of Maine and how True Fin is responding to it.
As the company says, “True Fin is committed to providing professional chefs and home chefs the best seafood from the Gulf of Maine. We buy directly from fishermen to provide top quality, fully traceable seafood that is good for our customers, the ocean and coastal communities.”
Waterside Chat connects people who depend on healthy oceans and fisheries with the issues that directly affect them and their communities. In each episode, the Network’s Deputy Director Tom Sadler talks with different guests about ocean policy and fisheries management topics. He engages them in genuine and thoughtful conversations about what policy decisions mean for people’s livelihoods, communities, recreation, and coastal ways of life.
