BEFORE YOU BUY, ASK IF IT’S OCEAN WISE
The Ocean Wise symbol identifies that seafood item as a good choice to help protect life in our oceans.
The Vancouver Aquarium does the homework, reviewing the latest scientific information – and then recommends sustainable seafood choices to Ocean Wise partners. What makes a seafood option Ocean Wise? Sustainable seafood is, very simply, seafood caught in a way that ensures the health of our oceans for years to come.
Ocean Wise choices are species that are:
- Abundant and resilient to fishing pressures
- Managed as part of a comprehensive plan based on current research
- Harvested in ways that limit accidental bycatch of other, possibly endangered species
- Harvested in ways that limit damage to ocean habitats
Many of Canada’s leading restaurants, markets, suppliers and food service businesses are proud partners of Ocean Wise. When you order seafood, look for the Ocean Wise symbol to ensure you’re making the best choice for the health of our oceans.
