Ramey & TCI Promote Sustainable U.S. Catfish
Chefs from across the nation gathered at the Monterey Bay Aquarium this week for Cooking for Solutions, the annual event focusing on sustainable seafood and organic agriculture education and awareness. Again this year, The Ramey Agency supported The Catfish Institute (TCI) in their efforts to promote the U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish industry.
Benjamin Brown, executive chef at Pebble Beach Golf Resort, and Cameron Hamilton, executive chef for Google Inc., offered tastings of Tequila Catfish Tacos with Tomato and Avocado Salsa, along with Catfish Tostadas with Spicy Cabbage Slaw, Spring Onions and Green Garlic, while representatives from TCI were on hand to answer questions and provide information about the domestic catfish farming industry.
The aquarium’s Seafood Watch program has, since its creation, recognized U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish as a “Best Choice” in its sustainable seafood guide, making this event a permanent part of TCI’s marketing campaigns for the past several years.
