zebra fish

Legal Seafoods has been supporting cancer research by Dr. Leo Zon at Children’s Hospital in Boston for almost 15 years. Dr. Zon is working in the areas of genetics, childhood leukemia, and the immune system.

Dr. Zon uses zebra fish because their lifespan is short and, believe it or not, because their genetic makeup is similar to humans’. In addition to serving and selling fresh and delicious fish, Legal Seafoods has raised almost $1 million for this “fishy” but likely-to-be-fruitful research.

An interview by Frank Quaratiello, Boston Herald business editor with Legal Seafoods president and CEO Roger Berkowitz appeared on November 5, 2010.

Here’s to happy and healthy eating,
