Do you ever want to know where the crab meat in your California Roll comes from? Well, guess what-- there’s an app for that. Seafood Watch by The Monterey Bay Aquarium helps consumers and businesses find seafood that is ocean-friendly in a fast and easy way. It gives you recommendations on where to get the best seafood, learn about what you are eating, and gives locations of sustainable seafood providers. So if you want to know if that place down the street is as sketchy as it looks, simply search it on the Seafood Watch app!
With over 340 business members, including Whole Foods and Aramark, Seafood Watch is striving to have all seafood be sustainably sourced. In order to be considered ocean-friendly seafood, the process is rigorously assessed. The team does a crazy amount of research through government reports, articles and white papers. They also contact experts in the fishing field. With high standards and an easy-to-use app, Seafood Watch is a great go-to when that sushi craving hits.
Here at Fair Harbor HQ, we love our seafood (I could eat salmon every day for the rest of my life) and align with the values and goals of the Monterey Bay Aquarium; so download the app and help us support the ocean-friendly restaurants.
Sea's the Day!
