BBRSDA Waypoints Radio - Episode 5 - 2023

In this episode of Waypoints Radio, the BBRSDA explores not one but two different ways it can support getting more Bristol Bay Sockeye Salmon into the marketplace: The Alaska Symphony of Seafood, and healthy retail partnerships.

First, BBRSDA Executive Director Andy Wink sits down with Julie Decker and Julie Cisco of Alaska Fisheries Development Foundation, Keith Singleton of Alaskan Leader Seafood, and Kara Berlin of Thunder's Catch to discuss the benefits of entering (and winning!) Alaska Symphony of Seafood. Then, BBRSDA Marketing Director Lilani Dunn catches up with Jason Hedlund, the Principal Category Merchant of Seafood Procurement for Whole Foods Market, to discuss just how appreciated and valued Bristol Bay fishermen's work is by retail partners.

Waypoints Radio is produced by the Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association, as an in-season extension of their monthly email newsletter.
