Sneak peek: lineup of seafood tastings at Boston seafood show

It’s the largest seafood event in North America, and now the launch of the 2013 International Boston Seafood Show (March 10 – 12, 2013) is only days away – and Canada’s seafood farmers will be there.

Look for Boston-based Chef Scott Patnode at the CAIA booth where he will be grilling, steaming and shucking delicious samples of Canadian farmed seafood.

The Canadian Aquaculture Industry Alliance (CAIA) is representing members at the show and will be bringing a variety of fresh farmed seafood and serving it from a live cooking station from CAIA exhibition booth #1445 throughout the three-day event.
