40TH ANNIVERSARY

Ocean Wise banner

 

Ocean Wise™ is a conservation program developed by the Vancouver Aquarium to educate and empower consumers about the issues surrounding sustainable seafood.

 

What is sustainable seafood?

 

It's seafood caught or farmed in such a way that it ensures the health and stability of that species as well as the greater marine ecosystem for generations to come.

 

A seafood recommendation that's Ocean Wise™ means a species is:

  • Abundant and resilient to fishing pressure
  • Managed as part of a comprehensive fishing plan based on current scientific information
  • Harvested in ways that limit other fish species, and possibly endangered species, from being caught incidentally (known as bycatch)
  • Harvested in ways that limit damage to ocean habitats

The Ocean Wise™ symbol next to a seafood item is the Vancouver Aquarium's assurance of an ocean-friendly seafood choice.

 

The Ocean Wise™ program is about raising consumer awareness of sustainable seafood, providing a credible source of information on sustainable choices, and working with Ocean Wise™ partners to ensure they can identify and deliver seafood harvested in a sustainable manner.
