Enjoy Good Food

The Vancouver Aquarium is a non-profit organization: our earned revenues, such as those earned from our café, directly support our education, conservation and research initiatives.

In 2005 the Aquarium launched the Ocean Wise® sustainable seafood conservation program. As the Ocean Wise program continues to expand we are proud to share that celebrated chef and sustainable seafood ambassador Ned Bell joined the team as our executive chef in July 2016! 

Look for Chef Ned Bell's creations at our cafés!
