Part of living sustainably is making wise decisions about the food we eat. For example, we know that eating a plant-based diet and limiting our meat consumption is best for the planet. And when we do eat meat, it helps to know how that ribeye got to our plates.

But what about seafood? With the fish we eat, it’s important to know what kind of fishing practices we’re supporting. Especially as overfishing has become one of the greatest threats to our oceans.

That’s why Slow Food in the Tetons partners with Alaska’s Pride of Bristol Bay. They bring wild, sustainable sockeye salmon to land-locked dinner tables in Jackson. Today they are serving salmon at the Jackson Hole People’s Market and signing folks up who want to pre-order boxes of frozen salmon.

Ahead of that salmon extravaganza, we brought Scott Steen of Slow Food in the Tetons and Pride of Bristol Bay fisherman Matt Luck into the studio to talk sustainable fishing and more.
