Commerical fishing season set for tasty start
The 2013 Fresh & Local Seafood Kickoff will also help raise awareness about some of the lesser-known and lesser-used fish caught by New Hampshire fishermen each year as they face massive quota cuts for more popular species including cod and haddock.
University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension and NH Sea Grant are also helping to host the event.
“It’s a kickoff to the commercial fishing season, but more importantly what we’re doing is making a point to highlight underutilized species that are extremely indigenous to here, extremely underutilized and species these fishermen catch and can catch regularly but they don’t have a market for it right now that can help them sustain,” Louis said.
Louis already works with redfish, soft-shell lobster and pollock in his restaurant, so he said he is excited to work with whiting, a small, white hake, for Sunday’s event.
Louis, like all of the participating chefs, tries to source locally as often as he can, whether it be produce, meat, or seafood.
