On August 25th, 2016, Sanibel Sea School will hold a community screening of Mullet: A Tale of Two Fish. The documentary, part of WGCU Public Media’s Sustainable Seafood Series, provides an overview of the historical and economic significance of this fish in Florida, and its potential to become a more popular source of sustainable protein in the future. 

The screening will be followed by a Q & A session with local mullet experts, including scientists, restaurateurs, and fishermen. Attendees will also have the opportunity to sample mullet hors d’oeuvres, which will be provided by Sweet Melissa’s Café. “We hope the event will encourage people to become more open to trying sustainable seafood options that they might consider unusual,” said Dr. Bruce Neill, Sanibel Sea School’s Executive Director. “Mullet has a bad reputation in the restaurant industry, but it is actually delicious and can be prepared in so many ways. It is a much better choice for the planet than larger predatory fish like tuna, salmon, and grouper.” 

The screening will begin at 6 PM at Sanibel Sea School’s Flagship Campus (455 Periwinkle Way). Space is limited, please click here to reserve your seats. Sanibel Sea School is a 501c3 nonprofit whose mission is to improve the ocean’s future, one person at a time. To learn more, visit www.sanibelseaschool.org.
