Cuisine and preservation of marine resources by Elisabeth Vallet


Marine resources are dwindling whilst, at the same time, fish and shellfish are becoming increasingly popular with consumers. As an intermediary between industry professionals and consumers, Chefs have a key role to play in the preservation of resources by choosing species whose stocks are in good shape. In addition, they know better than anyone else how to introduce consumers to species which are often overlooked, or considered less “noble” than others, but which are nonetheless just as delicious and whose stocks are not weakened. This conference will present the main challenges faced by marine resources (fishing and fish farming) and the questions that any Chef, whether professional or amateur, can ask himself to ensure he is buying “sustainable” fish and, as such, contributing to the preservation of the remaining wild resources.
