The Golden Goose-Fish of the Northeast : A Regional Seafood Promotion Initiative

Earlier this month, the Fisheries Department of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County’s Marine Program began its latest collaboration with the commercial fishing industry, industry organizations, and Food Export-Northeast’s Seafood Program Coordinator Colleen Coyne to increase consumption and demand of local seafood throughout the Northeast region. Funding provided by the Saltonstall-Kennedy Grant Program allows this project to focus on increasing domestic demand for monkfish (aka goosefish) through product development and audience expansion.
