Voices from the Waterfront: Local Ocean Meet Seafood Restaurant Owner Laura Anderson

October is National Seafood Month, a time to highlight smart seafood choices, sustainable fisheries, and the health benefits of eating a diet rich in seafood. This is also an opportunity to showcase some successes as we turn the corner on ending overfishing along with the daily challenges facing United States fishermen and local businesses that depend on a steady supply of safe, sustainable seafood.

This month, as part of our regular Voices from the Waterfront series, we feature Laura Anderson, owner of  Local Ocean Seafood – a popular seafood restaurant on the waterfront in scenic Newport, Oregon. Click on the video below to hear her story and learn why she works so hard to bring a variety of sustainable local seafood to her customers.
