Campaign aims to send more Oregon seafood to Oregon tables

There are a lot of fish in the ocean. But the ones in the ocean near us, when caught for food, often head someplace else. And vice versa: the Oregon Coast Visitors Association recently reported that 90% of the seafood eaten on the Oregon coast comes from somewhere else.

So the OCVA is mounting a campaign to encourage more local consumption of seafood, to reduce carbon consumption and increase local jobs. Marcus Hinz is Executive Director of the OCVA and our guest.

Marcus is joined by Max Valentine, Human Rights expert and the Campaign Director, Illegal Fishing and Transparency, for the ocean conservation group Oceana.
