Red Fish Blue Fish is committed to serving only Ocean Wise seafood. Ocean Wise is a Vancouver Aquarium conservation program created to help restaurants and their customers make sustainable seafood choices.
Sustainable seafood can be defined as species that are caught or farmed in a way that ensures the long-term health and stability of that species, as well as the greater marine ecosystem.
Ocean Wise’s recommendations are based on 4 criteria.
An Ocean Wise recommended species is:
- Abundant and resilient to fishing pressures.
- Well managed with a comprehensive management plan based on current research.
- Harvested in a method that ensures limited bycatch on non-target and endangered species.
- Harvested in ways that limit damage to marine or aquatic habitats and negative interactions with other species.
