NC State Seafood Day

Alex Chouljenko, director of the NC State Seafood Lab at the Center for Marine Science and Technology (CMAST), and Greg Bolton, Seafood Lab research assistant, recently visited Raleigh to participate in two events they collaborated on with NC State Dining.  Chouljenko says, “One was a ‘Seafood Day’ at the Fountain Dining Hall where a seafood-inspired menu was served and where we had a booth at the entrance to hand out NC State trinkets and seafood information. We talked about buying seafood, seafood quality, seasonality, and safety with students who stopped by the booth.  In the afternoon, we did a kitchen prep and cooking demo for 22 participants where Greg filleted and cooked local bluefish two ways (provided by Local’s Seafood in Raleigh).”
