Scales & Ales kicks off National Seafood Month, which highlights the importance of sustainable seafood and the work of Audubon Nature Institute’s Gulf United for Lasting Fisheries (G.U.L.F.) program. Through G.U.L.F., Audubon is ensuring that local fisheries thrive for future generations and that seafood remains a vibrant part of our local culture and economy. Proceeds from Scales & Ales support Aquarium education and conservation programs like G.U.L.F. that empower the community through interactive learning.
