(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) Palo Alto, CA - September 20, 2011 - “Eating local” has become a way of life for many consumers, but even dedicated locavores flounder when they enter the murky waters of local seafood.

Meanwhile, many conscientious consumers avoid farmed seafood entirely, unaware that responsible local producers exist.
