When I went to lunch at YEW seafood + bar a couple days ago (to do THIS feature), Chef Ned Bell handed me the t-shirt below. He’s been working with Ocean Wise, SeaChoice and others to help build support for a National Sustainable Seafood Day, and he’s fresh off a trip to Ottawa where the group went on a bit of a field trip to spread the word on parliament hill.
I’m wearing this shirt in support of the effort to designate March 18 as the official National Sustainable Seafood Day in Canada. It’s meant to raise awareness around overfishing and destructive fishing practices, the decline of wild fish populations and the fact that Canadian consumers want to support sustainable seafood options.
