Slow Food Phoenix Sustainable Seafood Month Social Media Challenge
October 1 - October 31
Slow Food Phoenix is hosting a Social Media Challenge to kick off National Seafood Month and we’d love for you to join us. Sustainable Seafood is all about how to choose seafood that’s fished or farmed in ways that support a healthy ocean, now and for future generations.
If you are at the grocery store look for the labeling that identifies the fish you are choosing is sustainable. When you are out dining ask your server or chef which sustainable varieties they offer on their menu. Many chefs are now bringing awareness to the forefront and we are beginning to see more and more sustainable options identified on their menus.
Why Choose Sustainable?
It is better for the oceans.
It is good for the whole family.
It is a way to drive change with your shopping habits.
It’s available at every price point.
It’s a way to ensure seafood for generations to come.
Whether you are a home cook, an avid diner or a professional chef we want to see your pictures of sustainable seafood showcased here in the valley. Even though we live in the desert we can still do our part to support sustainable seafood whether we are dining out or cooking at home. To learn more about sustainable varieties and current work being done to protect our oceans visit Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch.
