Over 20 restaurants in Maine are shining the spotlight on seafood species that are typically unappreciated.

Acadian redfish was featured in June and Atlantic mackerel was featured in July.  There are additional promotions scheduled for September, October and November, although we don’t know what seafood will be on the menu.

The program is designed to raise awareness and eventually increase the demand for the unappreciated seafood species, while lessening the demand for more popular and overfished species.
