Our latest Please Explain is all about seafood—how it’s harvested, what sustainable fishing entails, and how fish gets from the sea to your plate. We're joined by Sheila Bowman, senior manager of outreach and education, Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, and Dr. Gina Solomon, who is both a medical doctor and a senior scientist with Natural Resources Defense Council.
The shrimp season just started in the Gulf. Dr. Gina Solomon, a senior scientist with the NRDC, looks at seafood safety following the BP oil spill and calls for stricter testing of Gulf seafood. Todd Harding, general manager for the wholesale division of Lobster Place, tells us if Gulf seafood is showing up locally - and whether buyers are buying it and consumers are worried.
