CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Do you know where your seafood comes from?

Do you care how many “touches” there have been before you’re served something? Are you concerned about overfishing or depleting populations of popular fish due to consumer demand?

This week on Taste Buds, we’ll explore the topic of sustainable seafood.

Several restaurants in town have been vocally and strongly committed to only using responsibly sourced seafood.

Executive Chef Regan Reik will be a guest on this week’s show. The Gold Coast restaurant has been a champion of Copper River salmon for years. And Chef Reik works closely with vendors to limit the amount of “touches” on each piece of fish from ocean or lake to the dinner plate.

Also joining me and Chef Matt Mytro on the show this week will be Chef Doug Katz, of Fire Food & Drink, and Chutney B.

Katz serves as an ambassador to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program and is also a member of the Blue Ribbon Task Force.
