Issue cover of Rhode Island fisherman dumping catch of squid

The winter 2019-2020 issue (volume 9, issue 2) includes papers on a wide range of food systems topics.

On our cover: Squid are loaded onto a conveyor belt by a Rhode Island fisherman. Rhode Island is fortunate to have a vibrant, year-round fishery steeped in tradition. The state’s Port of Galilee is one of the largest commercial fishing ports on the East Coast of the U.S. and is home port to over 250 commercial fishing vessels, including the Eastern Seaboard’s largest squid-fishing fleet. The Rhode Island Seafood Marketing Collaborative is actively engaged in a host of programs and activities aimed at fostering increased interest in and demand for local seafood products. See the article in this issue, Rhode Island Branding Program for Local Seafood: Consumer Perceptions, Awareness, and Willingness-to-Pay.      Photo by M.
