THE SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD CELEBRATION
The Sustainable Seafood Celebration (SSC) is a nonprofit group launched in 2018, founded by Larry Mellum (owner & founder of Pike Place Chowder), and Riley Starks (founder of the Salish Center for Sustainable Fishing Methods). SSC’s mission is to raise awareness of the fruits of the Salish Sea – encouraging efforts to keep our local waters healthy despite rapid population growth; rebuilding healthy populations of wild salmon from the Salish Sea; supporting the survival of the Orcas; and highlighting the successful results of good policy and responsible management.
