On November 13, approximately 200 guests joined Minnesota Sea Grant at the McNamara Alumni Center to celebrate the sustainable uses of Lake Superior lake herring (a.k.a. cisco) as well as the artistry of ten exceptional chefs. Surveyed guests described the event as "fabulous," "memorable," and "delicious." Someone even wrote that the Salute represented the "TRUE taste of Minnesota." Wow!

After all was said and done, the majority of guests indicated that they plan on consuming more fish from Lake Superior. Through this response, Minnesota Sea Grant has met its goal in creating an event extending ideas and information about sustainable fisheries.
