The following is geared toward our network in North Carolina. If you are a North Carolina chef or restaurateur – please read and take action!
We’re calling on chefs in our network to speak out about proposed legislation in the North Carolina General Assembly that threatens our supply of North Carolina wild-caught fish. This is not a conservation measure – these species are already monitored and managed in North Carolina – it’s about who gets to catch the fish.
We’re asking you to do two things:
1. Sign on to a Chef and Restaurateur Letter opposing House Bill 983 that will be sent to the North Carolina General Assembly. In other states, chefs have had a big impact on similar issues and we want to be sure that your voice is heard.
2. Forward this email to chefs you know in North Carolina that care about maintaining access to sustainable, wild fish for everyone.
If you want to know about any opportunities for additional involvement, including public hearings on this issue, please email us and we’ll connect you with organizers on the ground.
Thanks for your support, and please be in touch with any comments or questions.
