A farewell message from Craig Weatherby, newsletter editor 04/16/2020
Dear Vital Choice Subscribers,
Thank you for subscribing to the Vital Choice newsletter.
Some of you may know that I’ve served as the editor and chief writer for our email newsletter for the past 17-plus years.
I recently retired from Vital Choice Wild Seafood & Organics and am writing to thank you for your attention and for the smart comments and questions you’ve sent over the years — it’s been a pleasure to share and debate my discoveries with you!
I very much appreciated your attention and engagement. And rest assured that this newsletter will continue uninterrupted. Our talented editorial team remains committed to providing you with the best information we can find on optimizing personal and planetary health.
We launched the newsletter in May of 2003, not very long after Randy and Carla Hartnell founded the company in 2002.
During the ensuing 17-plus years, I’ve greatly enjoyed researching and writing more than 1,000 newsletter articles about links between food and health — and about the threats to wild salmon and other fish posed by poorly regulated mining, logging, and industrial salmon farming.
It was also my privilege to research and write the VitalChoice.com pages about omega-3 fatty acids, America’s dietary “omega imbalance”, wild salmon, and the inherent purity of Vital Choice seafood. I hope they will enhance your appreciation for the value of wild salmon and seafood — and the importance of protecting this irreplaceable resource.
I want to thank Randy and Carla Hartnell for a wonderful career at Vital Choice, for giving me great latitude as newsletter editor, and for very kindly including me on two amazing, unforgettable small-boat tours through Southeast Alaska’s whale-filled Inside Passage.
And I will miss my Vital Choice colleagues, who — as I can attest — work conscientiously to provide our customers with superior foods and supplements. I’ve never worked with a better, more dedicated bunch!
Seven years ago, my life’s path led me to an ironically appropriate spot when I moved to the small town of Shelburne Falls, in the foothills of Massachusetts’ beautiful Berkshire Mountains.
I say it’s an appropriate spot because my house sits on the banks of Deerfield River — once home to a thriving native American salmon fishery — just a few minutes’ walk from Salmon Falls, site of a treaty between two tribes who’d long fought over the river’s wild salmon.
That’s a pretty wild coincidence, and my years at Vital Choice have been a wild — and wildly gratifying — ride.
Thanks again for subscribing and reading — I very much appreciated your attention and engagement!
Best wishes to all,
Vital Choice Newsletter Editor, retired
