‘Appetite for Invasives,’ a short film about eating marine invasive species, created by ECAD2016 co-chairs Emily Driscoll, Nancy Rosenthal & Gaelin Rosenwaks, premiered as Editors’ Pick in The Atlantic! This rare, behind-the-scenes look, gives insight into the sustainable-themed reception menu for the 112th Explorers Club Annual Dinner - OCEANS: Current of Life!
About the film:
Club Member Gene Rurka is an exotic foods specialist who was tasked with creating the menu for the 112th Explorers Club Annual Dinner—which focused on marine invasive species that are more sustainable to consume, like lionfish and raw Asian carp (and even iguana). This short film, ‘Appetite for Invasives’, follows Rurka as he consults with the ecologist and Club Member Carl Safina on seafood choices, and the challenges and benefits of eating invasive marine creatures.
