Ocean Wise is a Vancouver Aquarium conservation program. The program was designed to educate and empower consumers about issues surrounding sustainable seafood. Ocean Wise works with restaurants, food services and food suppliers to help them make ocean-friendly purchasing decisions. The Ocean Wise symbol highlights ocean-friendly options on menus and is likely familiar to many Vancouverites in particular though it can be found across Canada.
To make it even easier to find a company or restaurant that supports environmentally-friendly or ocean-friendly seafood, you can conduct a search on Ocean Wise’s website. Whether you are wondering about a specific restaurant, market/retail location, supplier, caterer or university/college OR simply want to know what your options are if you are committed to sustainability, this tool is for you. As you many of you gear up to enjoy Dine Out Vancouver, I encourage you to check out this resource (from the main page, look under “Restaurants & Partners”).
