In addition to sourcing all of our ingredients locally, we’re proud to announce that we have been made Ocean Wise Partner with the Vancouver Aquarium. After Ocean Wise audited our menus, they came back to us with Ocean Wise status, and informed us that every one of our dishes meets their strict criteria for sustainability.
What does Ocean Wise Mean?
Ocean Wise is a non-profit run by the Vancouver Aquarium, which aims to promote sustainable seafood options that ensure the future health of our oceans and fisheries. Overfishing is one of the greatest threats to our oceans. As we continue to use unsustainable fishing methods, we run the risk of losing the biodiversity within them, thus weakening our entire ecosystem.
Ocean Wise works directly with restaurants, markets, food services and suppliers to ensure that they follow a specific set of criteria when it comes to the seafood they provide. If they meet the organization’s standards, they are awarded the Ocean Wise logo and can operate in the knowledge that they doing as little harm as possible to the world’s oceans.
We are especially proud to be included in the growing list of establishments throughout the country, and will stay committed to keeping our 100% Ocean Wise status.
