FORT MYERS — Saturday's Ocean Commotion event at Edison State College was all about encouraging visitors to think about how to take steps to make seafood more sustainable and to raise awareness for keeping the oceans healthy.
"We need to keep our oceans and ourselves healthy," said Event Coordinator and Professor of Marine Science Rozalind Jester.
The event drew many visitors with exhibits and samples of sustainable seafood. Event goers were able to hold live sea animals at the Imaginarium's touch table and see how farm grown tilapia are raised at WW Farm's exhibit.
Seafood Savvy's exhibit urged visitors to ask before buying seafood to determine the sustainability.
"This is all about education about environmental issues, protecting waterways, preventing overfishing and how all of these things affect everything," said event staff member Lynda Mastronardo.
