Nic Mink of Sitka Salmon Shares on Boat to Plate & Connecting Consumers with Beyond Sustainable Fish
On this week's episode of the podcast, my co-host, Lauren Manning, chats with Nic Mink, the CEO of Sitka Salmon Shares, a member of Local Catch and the nation’s largest community-supported fishery (CSF) delivering responsibly harvested seafood to the doorsteps of seafood lovers around the country.
Sitka Salmon Shares operates like a CSA (community supported agriculture), providing monthly boxes of wild-caught Alaskan fish and seafood to consumers who pay in exchanges for a share of the season's catch.
Nic is on a mission to change the way the world thinks about fish and describes how he aims to advocate for fishing that is beyond sustainable - fishing that is not only good for the environment, but also the social, cultural, and economical systems of the area.
Nic and Lauren dive into how we can become more involved with the "boat to plate" process of the fish we eat and what we can do to support small fishermen fishing in a healthy, sustainable way.
