A fishy Kickstarter campaign from my philosopher-fishmonger friend

My favorite philospher-fishmonger of all time, Dylan Hitchkock-Lopez, has launched  Kickstarter campaign for his startup business, Seashaken. Be sure to click on the video Рwell worth the 2:40.

The Grist story linked above (and again right there. Sorry to be redundant. Did I mention the Grist story?) does a good job with Dylan’s bio.

How do I know someone young enough to be my son who is launching a business dedicated to bringing sustainable, line-caught (not bycatch-laden net-scooped) salmon from our great petroleum and fish-rich northerly state to the Rocky Mountains? His mom Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock and I were Ted Scripps Fellows in Environmental Journalism together a few years back. He once took me cross-country skiing up at Eldora. Kicked my ass.

I won’t belabor this, but if you’re in Denver/Boulder/Santa Fe, check it out the campaign. I’ve bought Seashaken fish before and it’s a treat. The pricing is less than what you’ll pay retail for non-farmed salmon anyway. Plus it comes frozen in its original fishy form, which is always a conversation starter. As I told Dylan, I’d like to see him in grad school, but this is an interesting interlude, and I hope you can help him out before the Dec. 15 deadline and enjoy some excellent salmon, too.
