About the film:

What a Dinner Menu of Invasive Species Looks Like

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.
