2012 St. Andrews Seafood Forum and Festival, June 5-10
This week seafood professionals, seafood lovers, foodies, chefs and researchers will unite in the southern New Brunswick to experience Bay of Fundy seafood as they never have before.
The 2012 Seafood Forum: Perspectives on Sustainability will run from June 5-8 and is a remarkable opportunity for seafood professionals and researchers to exchange information and discuss the evolving topic of sustainable seafood.
The 2012 Seafood Festival will follow on June 8-10 which will welcome visitors from around the Maritimes and New England to kick off the summer tourism season with a full schedule tours of salmon farms, special seafood menus in local restaurants, seafood and wine pairings, music and the biggest lobster boil, clam bake, salmon BBQ and seafood feast that one can imagine.
This region of New Brunswick is an ideal host for these annual celebrations. It boasts some of the world’s best North Atlantic lobster grounds and is the birthplace of Canada’s east coast commercial salmon farming industry. Bay of Fundy fishermen and fish farmers produce a diverse array of other seafood – including herring, shrimp, scallops, dulse, clams and mussels.
