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."

Author Maria Finn will be joining us here for a one-hour Q&A Thursday, January 3rd, from 3:00-4:00pm. Mark your calendars!

    Jan 3 2013: A question from Facebook... why eat the gills/bones/etc, versus tossing them in the compost?
    • Jan 3 2013: Hi Aja,

      Toss the gills and bloodline into the compost. As for eating the other parts, think of it as a culinary adventure and the skin, collar and eggs are the oil parts of the salmon with the highest concentrations of Omega-3s, so they are the healthiest.
