Goal 2: The local seafood system will have strong markets, support livelihoods, and increase consumer demand.

Recommendation 2.2: Increase consumer education on local seafood....

Action 2.2.1

Fund, develop, and implement educational curriculum and events to increase consumer awareness of the benefits of eating fresh, local seafood, as well as precautions to take to ensure that fish eaten comes from unpolluted waters, and that exposure to heavy metals in fish is minimized. Revisit past New England Seafood Series programming by UMass Extension Nutrition Education Program, and consider rededicating funding.
