Opening day at the Boston Seafood Show was packed with people from all over the world. If last year’s theme was sustainability, I think this year’s theme was buy, sell, brand, distribute and market. I didn’t get a warm fuzzy feeling over traceability and sustainability, this year; of buying local and choosing “trash fish” over codfish. These themes I’m sure were discussed behind the scenes and at the seminars. But in the trenches—the people-packed aisles where I was hanging out—we all jostled together in front of the exhibitors, reaching our hands into platters filled with Rhode Island clam cakes, Russian fish sticks, Norwegian salmon, Gulf shrimp, Korean seaweed. The theme here was definitely consume and have a good time. I had a blast. Enjoy the photos.
