Join Slow Food UNH this Friday for a Bristol Bay salmon-tasting, letter signing to the EPA, and Red Gold matinée!
When: Friday September 12, 2014
Where: University of New Hampshire, MUB 1 Theatre
What’s better than an afternoon movie!? …Knowing that your participation can help protect the most productive wild salmon fishery in the world!
Slow Food UNH is teaming up with Commercial Fishermen for Bristol Bay and Sarah Schumman from Eating with the Ecosystem to increase awareness of the situation in Bristol Bay, Alaska.
Right now, foreign multinationals are planning one of the world’s largest hard rock copper, gold and molybdenum sulfite mines in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska. The proposed Pebble Mine threatens the most productive wild salmon fishery in the world! Risk of acid mine runoff and heavy metal pollution could be detrimental to the long term sustainability of fish populations.
But you can help save the fish! 🙂
Come sit with us for an afternoon movie screening of Red Gold (trailer: http://vimeo.com/ondemand/11980/3075423). We will offer free tastings of wild-caught salmon from Bristol Bay, Alaska! We will also be joined by Sarah Schumann, a young food activist & small-scale fishermen. After the movie, supporters will have an opportunity to sign a letter to the EPA, urging them to protect Bristol Bay by using their authority to enact the Clean Water Act under the 404c process
