Friday, May 15th, some of the E&E Team attended a screening of the documentary film “The Breach,” an emotional account of the plight of wild salmon on the West Coast. http://www.thebreachfilm.com/

While the film highlights the majesty and power of our current sustainable runs of salmon in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, it does illustrate how much more robust certain historical runs were before the West became heavily populated by humans.

Mark Titus, the film maker, calls for action to ensure that the mistakes of our past don’t continue into the future, and that we preserve the robust fisheries we are fortunate to have year after year. He highlights the Bristol Bay sockeye fishery as a gem worth a priceless amount that should fall at risk to mining in its headwaters; why jeopardize the earths greatest resource of wild food? Titus calls for salmon lovers to “Eat Wild to Save Wild,” providing a full circle support mechanism for the livelihoods of commercial fisherman and the vitality of the resource they (and we) depend on.

As those in attendance dined on E&E Foods' very own Bristol Bay sockeye from our Coffee Point plant (salmon ceviche courtesy of the Taste SAM Restaurant, it was dynamite), we celebrated wild salmon and its future with Seattle area chefs, seafood industry professionals and commercial fishermen preparing for the season. It was inspiring to see much of the Seattle seafood community so interested and supportive of salmon, so thanks to BBRSDA for inviting us and to Mr. Titus for producing such a masterpiece!
