Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance's Rock the Boat Fundraiser
Rock the Boat is a tasting and music event that will highlight local-dayboat seafood tastings from area restauraunts, live music, chef demos, a fisheries-focused art exhibit, raffle and an auction! The evening will be joined by folk rock singer-songwriter Chelsea Barry and the Bob Marley tribute reggae band, Hope Road.
Ticket price will also include one free drink. Attendees will have a chance to taste the bounty of the ocean, learn about sustainable fisheries, dance to the music and bid on an awesome lineup of auction prizes while raising funds for a great organization.
NAMA works with coastal communities that depend on fishing to protect our marine environment, strengthen local leadership, and give voice to independent, community based fishermen. NAMA advocates for policies that advance social, economic, and environmental justice throughout the entire seafood value chain.
