Copper River in the Bronx

by Melissa Trainer


Some enthusiastic young students in the Bronx recently had the chance to sample and work with some canned Copper River silver salmon sent courtesy of the Copper River/Prince William Sound Marketing Association of Cordova, Alaska.

Thanks to the energy and enthusiastic thinking of Marge Perry, a food writer, these students were able to participate in a new after school cookery program held at The Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club in the Bronx.

For more detailed information on the program and for Marge's simple salmon recipe, see the recently released press release here.  Also, this release received immediate attention in National Fisherman's Blog, "Mixed Catch." Read that here.
