Catching up with Innovators: Walking Tour of the Boston Fish Pier and the Boston Seaport

This class will be held outside with social distancing guidelines observed. 

Laurie Zapalac, Ph.D.

Join us as we explore the historic Boston Fish Pier and discuss the past, present and future of Boston’s  commercial seafood industry. Learn about how Boston’s access to the major fishing grounds of the  Atlantic played a pivotal role in the history of the Boston economy, while continued investment in infrastructure and technology, as well as access to key markets, have been critical to sustaining the  Boston Seaport’s place as a hub within the global commercial seafood industry through regulatory and  ecological change. Along the way, we will meet contemporary innovators who call the Seaport home, and hear how they are transforming both supply and demand for commercial seafood in creative ways. For those in the group interested in enjoying a “takeout” picnic in the seaport immediately following the tour, we will provide recommendations of area restaurants serving great seafood (and other things) and instructions for ordering ahead. Alternatively, please feel free to bring your own picnic items. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle. Limited to 12.
