Season 1, Episode 6
When it comes to seafood the very best is that which is caught locally. 'Buy Fresh, Buy Local' is the locavore movement's mantra. As Ben finds out in California, marine habitat destruction, depleted fishing stocks, and strict government regulations don't always make it easy to buy locally. But in Santa Barbara a growing number of restaurants like Brophy Brothers, Santa Barbara Shellfish Company, and the Hungry Cat are part of a sustainable seafood program that is shifting the community's consumption to more viable sources.
