Free Seafood Watch Guide helps Bahamians Make Healthy Choices for Healthy Oceans - Dec 17, 2008 - 9:44:50 PM

Bahamians depend on marine resources for food, recreation and employment. The choices we make today on the seafood we eat will have a significant impact on our resources in the future. Dolphin Encounters has created a Seafood Watch Guide that has listed the best seafood choices to make and which seafood should be avoided based on the season, the way it was caught or farmed, or whether it contains mercury or other contaminants.


The recommendations which list both Bahamian and U.S. seafood choices were compiled in conjunction with the Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation (BREEF) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Foundation.


“The Seafood Watch Guide was created to help all consumers of local or foreign seafood make educated decisions about what they are eating and buying...

Long Island, Bahamas-Livin Like A Native - Sep 16, 2007 - 2:26:39 PM

If you have never been to Long Island, this article may give you a bit of a taste of it. Written by a travel writer "Lynn" who was given the opportunity to travel along with her Bahamian friend to visit for a Cartwright family reunion in July, 2007.
"It is worth noting that the island is a bit over 100 miles long, with one major asphalt road (The Queen's Road, which our friend’s uncle developed the 1960s) that runs the length, along the leeward shore of the island. In places the island may be six miles wide. Rough roads that connect from the Queen's Road to the rocky, windward shore are few and far between, due to the cost of bush hogging and putting in a (typically very steep) road. A consequence is that the beaches are deserted. It also helps that less than 5000 people live year-round on the island, so the island is indeed sparsely populated."

Foodways in The Bahamas - May 24, 2007 - 9:32:09 AM
Settlement patterns and migration trends indicate that the major influences on Bahamian cooking came from Africa, England, America and the West Indies. While the cooking of peas, beans and okra soup is probably of African origin, Guava duff was made by steaming the indigenous fruit, like an English pudding. Cooking grits was transferred from the American south...
