Food with Conviction - TED Talks Fish Farming

Pretty picture of a forest May apple, just a reminder that spring is coming because I didn't have a picture of a fish.
Are you familiar with TED Talks? TED stands for Technology Entertainment and Design. They are a not-for-profit devoted to getting innovative ideas out to the masses. Their tag line is: ideas worth spreading.  They have several conferences a year and do a fabulous job of making the talks into nice digestible video clips. 

Last weekend TEDxManhattan took place and it was all about food and our environment.  Several of the speakers resonated with me.  This one in particular.  It's a story told with humor and love of a fish farm that is sustainable.  And I mean sustainable in the way that word was meant to be used but rarely is.  This twenty minute  narrative is worth your time. 
 

Chef Dan Barber tells the story of a fish farm in Spain that has found a way to produce humane food and enrich the environment at the same time. Check out his full bio here.
