Ocean Wise Takes Over November


VANCOUVER — Ocean Wise has declared November Ocean Wise Month, challenging consumers and foodservice insiders to celebrate and promote sustainable fishing practices.

The Vancouver-based organization, whose logo appears on menus and seafood products that it deems ocean-friendly, is ringing in the month by celebrating its new cookbook and hosting a foodie-friendly event.

Freelance writer Jane Mundy’s Ocean Wise Cookbook, is a compilation of popular seafood dishes from Canadian chefs such as Michael Smith, Rob Feenie and Jamie Kennedy. Recipes include puff pastry fish pie, tuna tataki with green papaya slaw and Beaver Cove spot prawns with citrus basil butter.

Along with promoting the new cookbook, the NGO will be hosting Ocean Wise Seafood Chowder Chowdown events in Toronto (Nov. 17) and Vancouver (Nov. 24). Both events will feature chefs competing to create the Best Ocean Wise Seafood Chowder with a different panel of judges in each city.
