Surf & Turf: A Seafood Justice Podcast
On Apple Podcasts
About the Show
Surf & Turf is a seafood justice podcast that dives deep into the complex and often overlooked issues of access, equity, and justice in the U.S. seafood system. From the docks to the dinner plate, seafood supports communities and economies up and down the coasts, but social, political, and environmental conditions pose significant challenges to the health and well-being of the people who rely on fish for their food and livelihoods. Each week, host Dr. Caroline Ferguson speaks with an extraordinary individual working to create a more just seafood system that nourishes us all.
