3rd Local Seafood Summit

Adding Value(s) to a Transforming Seafood System

Sponsoring the Local Seafood Summit is a fantastic way to demonstrate your support for bringing about a shift in our seafood value chain. We envision a seafood system that sustains small-scale fishermen, supports thriving working waterfronts, protects the productivity of our marine ecosystems, catalyzes robust community food systems, and enables consumer access to healthy sources of trusted seafood.

Financial resources through Summit sponsorships are essential to making this vision – and this event – a reality. The Summit is primarily supported by a cadre of individuals that volunteer their own or their organization/company’s time to advancing the mission LocalCatch.org. The Summit will bring together a cross-section of innovators in the values-based seafood sector at the cutting-edge ‘Redd on Salmon Street’ venue in Portland, OR.

On the evening of October 6th, the Summit will invite the public and community members to mix and mingle with fishermen and changemakers fueling the local seafood movement in North America at a Local Seafood Celebration. This one-of-a-kind event will feature an array of delectable seafood provided by Local Catch member fishermen and community supported fisheries. Estimated attendance is 250 at the Summit and 500 at the dinner event.
