2021 New England Sea Summit
February 4 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm EST
UMass Dartmouth and Farm to Institution New England welcome you to attend the virtual 2021 New England Sea Summit focused on leveraging institutions to support local seafood producers, kelp and underutilized species. Join us for one day of programming which includes presentations from regional seafood experts, an engaging panel and stakeholder dialogue.
Speakers will share how a team of colleges and supply chain partners tackled procurement issues through a 2018 New England Food Vision Prize from the Henry P. Kendall Foundation. Learn more about the challenges and opportunities of producing and sourcing farmed kelp and underutilized fish species in New England. Speakers will also share how they worked to bring underutilized species into community and university dining programs, even with the added challenges presented by a global pandemic.
