Live Q&A at 3:00PM Eastern: Why do the choices we make about the seafood we eat play a part in a complex and interconnected ecosystem?

In her new TED Book, The Whole Fish, author and food writer Maria Finn will discuss her recent journey into the 'whole food' cooking movement, one that advocates eating the entire fish from gill to adipose fin. It's an approach that can not only improve your heath, happiness, and sex life, but also help save the complex ecosystem that supports the ocean.

The Whole Fish includes seafood recipes from some of the best chefs in the business; get ready for fish head soup, broiled collars, brined eggs, relish from the fatty bellies, baked skins for “fish bacon,” dried bones for grinding into “salt."

    Jan 3 2013: Hello all, and welcome to this live Q&A with author Maria Finn!

    Maria, thank you for joining us. Your book, The Whole Fish, has some fascinating ideas about how eating the whole fish can help the environment.

    To start off, I wanted to ask… how did you come up with the idea for the book? I understand that you worked as one of a few female fisherwomen in Alaska and learned a lot from Native Americans?
