The 2016 Local Seafood Summit in Norfolk, Virginia brought together more than 100 fishermen, community representatives, researchers, and extension specialists for a 2 and a half day conference.
The event aimed to strengthen the LocalCatch.org network, establish a shared understanding of the core values that underlie direct marketing and community supported fisheries, and provide tools and knowledge to strengthen the economic viability of the network’s many innovative businesses.
To follow up, a series of webinars will provide a summary of the summit and outline the many opportunities for collaboration that came out of the event. The first webinar will be held March 23, 2016 at 1:00 pm EST.
