Executive Chef, Tenney Flynn, Spearheads the G.U.L.F. Program's Chef Council
Audubon Nature Institute, one of the country’s foremost advocates of Zoo, Aquarium, Insectarium, and Nature Center exploration and education, launched the G.U.L.F. Program in 2012 in conjunction with the State of Louisiana Wildlife and Fishery. The mission of the G.U.L.F Program is to protect the ecosystems of the Gulf of Mexico and advocate for the wellness and manageability of Gulf fisheries, encouraging sustainability and conservation throughout the region.

GW Fins has worked closely with the Audubon Nature Institute for many years to aid their mission in preserving native Louisiana habitats. Audubon’s most recent program initiative is the creation of Gulf United for Lasting Fisheries (G.U.L.F.), which is dedicated to the conservation of U.S. fisheries in the Gulf of Mexico. A council of 12 local chefs spearheads the G.U.L.F. Council, and we are pleased that our own chef, Tenney Flynn, has been asked to head-up this prestigious group.
On Friday, September 12, 2014, GW Fins will be participating in the 5th Annual Scales and Ales fundraiser...
