LSU AgCenter seafood specialist Lucina Lampila will speak to the Baton Rouge Press Club at noon Monday, Aug. 1.
Lampila will discuss the safety of the seafood coming from the Gulf of Mexico. Seafood from this location is the most tested seafood in the United States. Yet the perception still lingers that it is somehow not as safe as it was before the April 2010 BP oil spill.
Press Club meets on Mondays at De La Ronde Hall, which is located at 320 Third St. in downtown Baton Rouge. Lunch, which is served at 11:30 a.m., is $12 for members and $15 for non-members.
The public is invited, but only members of the Press Club and members of the news media are allowed to ask questions during the question-and-answer portion of the program.
