New York Times bestselling author, Paul Greenberg, is back with his latest book American Catch: The Fight for Our Local Seafood. In American Catch, Greenberg explores the idea that Americans need to repair their relationship with local seafood. As more of us become health conscience and realize the benefits of eating fish, we also need to help in rebuilding the infrastructure to support local fishing to ensure the protection of these natural resources. Citing examples from Bristol Bay, Alaska's salmon to New York City's oysters, learn more about how you can protect the ocean with the choices you make in the grocery store.

As an added bonus, Greenberg will be joined by local fish supplier, Mac's Seafood for a conversation about how consumers can support their local seafood better. Located on Cape Cod since 1995, Mac's Seafood is a family business that has been buying local seafood since the very beginning. Why? Because they knew there was nothing better out there.
