On March 9, chefs from Sac-A-Lait and Audubon Nature Institute will team up to prepare a meal of sustainably caught Gulf seafood at the Audubon Aquarium Geaux Fish exhibit.

Chefs Cody and Samantha Carroll of Sac-A-Lait (1051 Annunciation St., 504-324- 3658) will team up with members of the Audubon Nature Institute to host a Sea to Table dinner March 9.

The event, which will be held at the Audubon Aquarium Geaux Fish! exhibit, is designed to raise awareness of sustainable fishing practices in the Gulf and will benefit the Audubon Nature Institute Gulf United for Lasting Fisheries (G.U.L.F.) and Louisiana Sea Grant.

The dinner is 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., costs $40 and includes wine pairings.

During the dinner, guests will learn about sustainability efforts and fishing practices in the Gulf of Mexico and Whole Foods representatives will discuss the company’s sustainability efforts and ratings system. Both Whole Foods and Inland Seafood are advocates for better sustainability practices in the fishing industry and both ensure traceability of their fish from the boat to the table.
