Seattle Aquarium Salutes Pike Place Fish

Seattle Aquarium Salutes Pike Place Fish

Today the Aquarium celebrated Pike Place Fish's success of reaching their goal to sell 100% sustainable seafood. That means they only sell seafood that is located on the "Best Choices" and "Good Alternatives" lists in the Seafood Watch Guide.

The Seafood Watch Guide was developed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium to help consumers identify whether the seafood they're buying is helping or hurting the survival of ocean wildlife. Those seafood options that are listed on the "Best Choices" and "Good Alternatives" lists are either abundant, caught in environmental friendly ways, or there is little concern for health. For more information about the guide and the Seafood Watch program, go to the Aquarium website.

To celebrate, representatives from the Aquarium were at Pike Place Fish handing out pocket size versions of the Seafood Watch Guide to customers and answering any questions they may have about sustainable seafood. Here are some pictures from the event.
