27 Apr Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® Partnership Announced!
We are proud to announce our partnership with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program to support healthy oceans. All of the seafood we sell is fished or farmed in ways that minimize environmental impact. St. Jude Farms and Fish Restaurant are the only two partners of this program in the Lowcountry and two of the four partners in South Carolina. There are a total of 400 partners worldwide.
“It’s an honor to partner with Seafood Watch in connecting food choices with the health of the ocean for the long-run,” says Chef Nico Romo. “We work hard at Fish to help others make responsible dining decisions. By sourcing ingredients from St. Jude Farms and local purveyors who are equally committed, our restaurant guests can be sure what’s on their plate supports flourishing sea life – and the Lowcountry fishermen who make it their livelihood,” stated Chef Nico Romo, Culinary Executive Director of Fish Restaurant. St. Jude Farms is a seafood purveyor to over 150 restaurants in the Charleston and Savannah area and is honored to work with Chef Romo and his team to provide the freshest, highest quality seafood available.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program works to broaden awareness of the links between the seafood on our plates and the health of our oceans as it helps consumers and businesses choose seafood that supports environmentally responsible fishing and fish farming practices.
