The South Shore Seafood Exchange will host a cooking night from 6:30 to 9 at the Maritime Center on Friday with the hope of increasing membership in the seafood program. The free event will focus on the fresh fish offered by the exchange program, which allows local fishermen to sell their wares to clients who sign up for weekly deliveries.
