If your from Vancouver and you like to eat out you will have noticed the Seachoice a organization that is stamped by my favorite enviromental activist David Suzuki and his foundation. Sea Choice does active scientific testing to determine what seafood is safe to eat and scale of Red (avoid, almost extinct), Yellow (moderate, try to avoid), Green (eat your heart out). Click here to check it out. Based on this list i have ventured to some restaurants around town and begun to ask questions.
What i found shocking that the restaurants with the Ocean Wise stamp don't provide there employees or customers with direct information on where there seafood is coming from, or how it is caught which ultimately determines if it is safe and sustainable to eat. Ocean Wise has also been stamping items that are clearly not sustainable (due to SeaChoices findings) and restaurants and the public have been so trusting that we haven't been questioning this.
I don't really understand what Ocean Wise has to gain from providing false information to the public, or where they have come off being the enviromental backers of what is sustainable when they do very little research. In all fairness some of the food is great to eat, but when the stamp there symbol they should know where and how it's caught, or else you might as well be eating a baby panda.
