Fish on the way!
Beau was back on the water in the Bay of Fundy this week and did a great job catching all of the fish for tomorrow's CSF delivery, as well as the Seafood Throwdown we are hosting as part of the Tall Ship Festival on the Halifax waterfront. Film-maker Kevin Moynihan was on the boat with him yesterday and sent us some screen grabs from his footage:

Off the Hook Seafood Throwdown!
If you happen to be on the Halifax waterfront tomorrow for Tall Ships, come see us at the Select NS/Catch Seafood festival Culinary Stage between 11:30 and 12:30 for the Off the Hook Seafood Throwdown.
Seafood Throwdowns were pioneered by the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (www.namanet.org). A Throwdown promotes local, sustainable small scale fishing and farming by pitting two local chefs against each other on stage in front of a crowd. The chefs (Renee Lavallee and Colin Stone) will be presented with a mystery fish caught by Off the Hook, and given 20 minutes to shop at the Brewery Market with $30 each. hen they'll head to the stage and prepare a dish for our judges (Stephanie Johns from the Coast, and Lia Rinaldo from the Atlantic Film Festival, and one Peoples' Judge chosen from the crowd). They'll hit the market shortley after 11, and they'll head for the stage at 11:30. We'll be live tweeting from the event at #SeafoodThrowdown. The event is free, and there will be tasty samples of Off the Hook haddock afterwards. If you're in the area, come to the Throwdown!
Enjoy the fish tomorrow, and thanks for supporting Off the Hook.
