Most of you probably already know that the bluefin tuna population is in trouble due to overfishing (so go easy on the sashimi). Did you know that sturgeons are in danger too?
The concept of sustainable seafood is not a novel one, yet awareness of it is quite low. WWF is hosting a Sustainable Seafood Week, where nine Soho restaurants (listed below) will be offering Ocean Friendly Menus. These menus will contain seafood that the WWF has classified as “recommended” (read: it doesn’t harm the marine ecosystem if you consume a lot of it).
Learn more about the concept while enjoying delicious (sustainable) seafood canapés at their kick-off party at Coast Bistro & Bar on November 26, from 3-5pm. This event is open to the public – all you have to do is turn up.
List of restaurants participating in Sustainable Seafood Week 2011:
1. Coast Bistro & Bar
2. Lil Siam
3. iCaramba! SoHo
4. McSorley’s Ale House
6. Posto Pubblico
7. La Perouse
WWF has also just released their Hong Kong Seafood Guide iPhone app. One for the Android will be released in a couple of weeks.
