Hello, and welcome to another episode of the podcast. Today I have an interview with Spearfisherwoman and Ocean Evangelist Valentine Thomas. Valentine was born in Montreal and trained as a lawyer in Canada, then worked in finance in London. Dissatisfied with her work in law and finance, Valentine was introduced to spearfishing while on holiday in Ibiza. The ocean - which she once feared - became her greatest passion, and she made fishing and diving her life’s work. Today on the podcast, we talk about spearfishing, tips for eco-friendly seafood choices, her cookbook Good Catch: A Guide to Sustainable Fish and Seafood with Recipes from the World’s Oceans, and recipes from the cookbook for canned sardines, the best tartar sauce, gummy bears using fish scales, fish, and pancakes, as well as fish head nachos.
