Panelist Bios

Sea To Table: Based in Brooklyn, NY, Sean Dimin is co-founder of Sea to Table. Enabling small-scale sustainable wild fisheries to ship directly from the point of landing to the point of consumption allows chefs across America to enjoy impossibly fresh seafood. Since graduating from Brown University in 2006, Sean has worked to expand this model to fisheries throughout Alaska, the Gulf of Mexico, and from the Carolinas up to New England. By directly connecting fishermen with the market, Sea to Table not only creates value for the chef, but value to fishermen, fisheries, and fishing cultures.

Iliamna Fish Co.: Christopher Nicolson is a fifth-generation wild Alaskan sockeye salmon fisherman. He fishes with his family in Bristol Bay, Alaska during the summers and lives with his wife and two children in Greenpoint, Brooklyn during the rest of the year. Christopher and his family host a wild sockeye "CSA" in Greenpoint. He also provides Dan Barber at Blue Hill and David Shea of Applewood with wild Alaskan sockeye. During the winters in New York, Christopher makes wine at the Red Hook Winery in Brooklyn (the wines of which are focused upon the viticulture of the North Fork of Long Island).
