Spotlight Series on Halibut
BCAITC is pleased to present its new Spotlight Series on Halibut! The series, supported by Buy BC, provides a selection of intermediate and secondary-level halibut educational resources that are available for free download from our website. Culinary Arts and Home Economics classrooms, homeschools, and anyone interested in learning about wild Pacific halibut can use the following tools:
- Lesson Plan: Educators can use the Wild Pacific Halibut Lesson Plan in conjunction with the following resources:
- Recipe: Students can utilize their culinary skills while making a delicious Pan-Seared BC Halibut, Roasted Vegetable Ratatouille, White Bean Purée, Lemon and Chive Vinaigrette, Micro Greens (a dish debuted with acclaim at BCAITC’s Cheers to 30 Years event in April).
- Grow BC: Students can explore Grow BC, an interactive GIS map and story resource, to learn about BC’s aquaculture story. This resource provides straightforward integration into class curriculum.
Pat Tonn, BCAITC’s Executive Director, said, “The Spotlight will help students learn about the sustainable management of the wild Pacific halibut fishery that provides nutritious, safe, and secure food for BC and beyond. Our BCAITC Education Specialist developed this new educational series alongside the Pacific Halibut Management Association of BC, a non-profit industry association representing commercial halibut license holders in BC with the support of Buy BC.”
BCAITC’s Chef Trevor Randle said, “I’m excited to use the Spotlight Series in my Culinary Arts classroom this spring to teach students about halibut. The students will learn how to make a selection of dishes with this nutritious and delicious BC white flatfish.”
