Ocean Wise 10th Anniversary Seafood Symposium – From Fisheries to Foodies
The Vancouver Aquarium is bringing together leaders in sustainable seafood – including scientists, chefs, and industry partners – for an evening of insight and discussion on the latest research in marine and fisheries science.
In 2005 the Vancouver Aquarium launched Ocean Wise, Canada’s first sustainable seafood program aimed at addressing the number one problem facing our world’s oceans today, overfishing. For ten years, Ocean Wise has been a national leader in sustainable seafood initiatives. Gaining support from 16 Vancouver-based partners in 2005, Ocean Wise has grown substantially over the last decade. Today Ocean Wise has over 600 partners with thousands of locations across Canada serving and supplying a diverse array of sustainable wild-caught and farmed seafood. As we celebrate the success of the sustainable seafood movement, we also look forward to new solutions for feeding a growing population without compromising the health of our oceans.
The symposium will be followed by a reception featuring refreshments and sustainable seafood, prepared by Vancouver Aquarium Executive Chef Tim Bedford. For those in Toronto, we will be celebrating – with delicious Ocean Wise food and beverages – and live streaming the symposium at the Centre for Social Innovation
