Maureen C. BerryI’m Maureen, host, writer, and producer of Green Fish Blue Oceans the podcast where stories about seafood are good for you and the oceans.

In January 2017, I launched Green Fish Blue Oceans to keep the sustainable seafood convo going while I work on my second cookbook, Shrimp From Market To Plate.

My goal with this podcast is to create a fun, learning experience for people like you who care about where your seafood comes from, who is catching it, and how can you make sure your choices are the best they can be to protect our beautiful blue planet.

I spent a great deal of time—the entire calendar year of 2016—thinking about the structure and format of my podcast. And I listened to a lot of podcasts.

Here’s what I came up with for Green Fish Blue Oceans.

  • Fifteen-minute episodes
  • Tackle two seafood species, (or include an ocean-related challenge) in each episode
  • Develop an A-Z format
  • Record an episode every two weeks (which would conveniently take me through one year at which point I could reconsider the format and structure)

More than halfway through S1, I am already considering S2.

  • Interviews (See below)
  • Longer episodes (20-25 minutes)
  • Expanding the issues—taking a deep dive to explore aquaculture and wild fisheries
  • Sponsorship

That’s it!

Now, if you’re curious about my podcasting process or want to learn a little more about how you can start a podcast, read 8 Steps To Set Up A Podcast on my Writing blog. I don’t claim to be an expert. Far from it. It’s just my experience. For instance, I’m freaking out about how to record a phone call with my existing equipment. Thankfully there’s YouTube. But hey, if you’re reading this and have a solution, hit me up.

Lastly, thanks for stopping by. And please consider subscribing so you don’t miss an episode.

A little more about me…

I’m a Kentucky-based sustainable seafood advocate and author of Salmon From Market To Plate, the cookbook for conscientious cooks who want to maintain a sustainable kitchen. You can buy my cookbook in print or e-book at or wherever you buy books online.

When I’m not writing, cooking, or behind the lens, I try to play better acoustic guitar. Or I’m hanging with my furbaby, an eleven-year-old wire fox terrier. But not at the same time!

Namaste friends.

Oh, you can find me tweeting @maureencberry,
