Exciting News!  Triton Takes Local Fresh Fish to School


Triton Regional School District will be offering fresh wild fish (Sole and Salmon) that is part of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC – a non-profit organization that promotes responsible fishing practices and ensures certified sustainable seafood to consumers), as well as, Red Fish from GMRI’s Gulf of Maine Responsibly Harvested® program. This means 2,800+ students residing in the Triton Regional School District (Salisbury, Newbury, Byfield, and Rowley, Massachusetts) will have the opportunity to eat responsibly harvested seafood that is traceable.

The program will kick-off on Thursday December 14, 2017 by serving “New England Baked Sole” {fresh baked sole with a Ritz cracker crumb topping} to the middle and high school students.

“Serving fresh locally harvested fish is a win-win-win scenario,” said Lucinda Ward, MEd, RD, SNS, and Director of Food Services for Triton.  “We’re supporting our regional food economy and we’re getting a healthy, local food to serve to our students.” Sourcing locally is often the best way to serve fresh, nutritious food that is affordable – an objective of the school’s Food Service Program.  Bon Appétit!
