Paddy’s Market Tours

Despite the rainy weather SIMS supporters ventured to Paddy’s Market at Chinatown on Saturday 15th February¬† and Sunday 16th February 2014 morning to join the SIMS seafood tour with an ‘underground perspective’. Marine scientist Shelby Oliver and senior NSW Fisheries Scientist and Manager for Resource Planning Doug Ferrell gave participants an insight into global and local fisheries. Many questions were asked during and after the tours showing the interest and concern consumers have in regards to buying sustainable seafood. This interest will hopefully lead to more collaborative SIMS – NSW Fisheries ventures in the future.

Thank you to Paddy’s Market and the staff of the seafood room for having us.
