The Santa Barbara Channel supports a small-scale owner-operated fishing fleet that responds to the seasonal availability of seafood. Supporting local fishermen instead of industrial fishing boats from somewhere else supports less waste and more accountability of sustainable fishing practices. And joining us in this venture is our title sponsor, Pacific Premier Bank. So what exactly is our idea…? To support our neighbors in the Harbor and international efforts to promote responsible fishing, SBMM is holding the first annual Sustainable Seafood Recipe Contest.
SBMM staff and board members, and their families, are not eligible for any contest prizes.
