#EatOregonSeafood initiative launched


The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA), the Oregon seafood industry, and Oregon Sea Grant have launched the #EatOregonSeafood initiative to encourage Oregonians and Washingtonians to purchase and prepare Oregon seafood at home amid the pandemic to support Oregon’s fishing communities affected by COVID-19.

The new initiative will feature an informational webpage and chefs on social media preparing delicious seafood dishes using seafood caught in the Pacific Northwest.

To find fresh, local seafood in their area, consumers can go to Oregon Sea Grant’s website “Eat Oregon Seafood” found here:  

We are lucky to have a few local places in Garibaldi to purchase fresh seafood like Fishpeople Seafood Market at Garibaldi Landing, The Garibaldi Cannery, SOURCE/ C S Fishery, Garibaldi’s Bay Market and the Spot.

In addition to showing where to buy local seafood, the “Eat Oregon Seafood” web page offers tips on when and what types of fish and seafood to purchase, how to freeze, smoke and prepare seafood at home, and has a selection of recipes for making various seafood-themed dishes, which will expand with the contributions of the #EatOregonSeafood campaign over the coming months.

ODA in partnership with the Oregon seafood industry encourages people to make and prepare their dishes and post them to social media using #EatOregonSeafood. They can also use the hashtag to promote the national initiative, which is #EatSeafoodAmerica!

This initiative is a collaboration of the Oregon Dungeness Crab Commission, Oregon Albacore Commission, Oregon Trawl Commission, Oregon Salmon Commission, Oregon State University Extension Service, Oregon Sea Grant, #PositivelyGroundfish and the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
