Bill’s By The Beach’s Chef Jon Gibson Selected as Wild American Shrimp Chef Advocate

Bill’s By The Beach is proud to announce that our own Chef Jon Gibson was selected to be a Chef Advocate for the Wild American Shrimp Chef Ambassador Program, a national campaign promoting the use of Wild American shrimp over mass produced imports. The program targets the hottest chefs in each state who support sustainable American seafood.

“I am honored to be selected as one of the Chef Advocates for Wild American Shrimp,” said Chef Jon. “I would like to issue a challenge to all my friends who are chefs to join, support, and become an advocate. It is time to take notice of what you eat and where it comes from. If you don’t know — ask. Support your local purveyors, farmers, and fisherman!”

The Chef Ambassador Program is designed to highlight the ways in which Gulf and South Atlantic shrimp can be incorporated into a range of delicious culinary dishes. Past Chef Ambassadors have included renowned television personalities such as Emeril Legasse, Mario Batali, Tyler Florence and John Besh, as well as more than 30 other nationally-recognized, award-winning chefs from across the country.
