“Offshore Aquaculture & World Protein Demand:  Commercial Incentives to Fulfill Conservation Imperatives”

Speaker:  Neil Anthony Sims, Founder & CEO, Ocean-Era, Inc.


For registration please go here.



Demand for fish and seafood is the world’s fastest growing protein food sector.  Indeed, the authors of the 2019 UN High Level Panel on the Oceans and Climate Change urged human transition from terrestrial to more marine-sourced foods.  But with wild stock fisheries already at their peak (and possibly beyond), how do we achieve this?  Can we really build a healthier environment and have our fish and eat it, too?  Responsible open ocean aquaculture offers solutions.  With decades of experience in tackling these issues, aquaculture pioneer, Neil Sims, p’17, from his operations base in Kona, Hawaii, will present:  a history of open ocean aquaculture; current commercial incentives that are driving it; and the technical innovations Ocean-Era employs to balance marine protein demand with environmental concerns.   There will be ample time for Q & A, with priority given to viewer questions sent in advance to:

One of our members has arranged with Public Wines, 23 Witherspoon St., to do a wine tasting for us. Our certified Sommelier and educator for the evening will be Sebastian Koncurat, who has 20 years of experience in the wine and culinary industries.


Here is the link about the four Loire Valley wines and how to purchase them   Please purchase or reserve wines by noon, Monday, Feb. 1. This will help Public Wine order enough in advance. Please note that if you buy 12 bottles or more you can get a 15% discount by using promotional code PA3.


Public offers free delivery to the following zip codes: 08502, 08504, 08525, 08528, 08534, 08536,08540,08542,08553, and 08558.

Optional Cheese Pairings suggested by Sebastian:


VBC Aged Couple: This is goat milk-based cheese from Vermont. Inspired by the traditional Crottin de Chavignol' Loire Valley cheese, it has a wrinkly edible rind and shows herbal earthy flavors. Flavour profile is ideal to pair with the Sauvignon Blanc from Menetou-Salon AOC made by Pierre Clement.


Baechler Truffle Raclette: Sourced from cow milk from the French wine region of Aquitania, this is a medium soft cheese. Very aromatic, this cheese is packed with flavours of dried fruit, toasted  almonds and black truffles. Ideal to accompany the Pineau D'Aunis Rose wine made by Domaine Brazilier  in the area of Coteaux de Vendemois AOC.


Morbiere: Made from unpasteurized raw cow milk from the North East region of Jura in France, this is a semi-firm cheese showing nutty, fruity and slightly sweet flavors. Ideal pairing with the Pinot Noir from Sancerre made by Daniel Crochet.


Comte: Made from unpasteurized raw cow milk, this is the oldest of all regulated cheeses in France. It has a medium hard texture with a nutty and earthy note along with a spicy and savory finish. Ideal pairing with the Cabernet Franc based red from Anjou AOC made by Chateau Soucherie


The cheeses can be found at Olsson's Fine Foods in Princeton or wherever fine cheeses are sold.
