Aquarium of the Bay helped found and leads the San Francisco Bay Area Sustainable Seafood Alliance. Aquarium of the Bay is committed to educating our guests about sustainable seafood and the impact of personal choice. Throughout the year, we work with partners at Monterey Bay Aquarium, California Academy of Sciences, the San Francisco Zoo, and The Marine Mammal Center to promote and enhance the sustainable seafood movement in the Bay Area, while providing regional support for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program.

Are you a true seafoodie? Give yourself a pat on the back and an extra bite of that best-choice seafood if you do all of the following: 

  1. Visit us and our partner organizations to learn more, and support local leaders in the sustainable seafood movement
  2. Check out Seafood Watch for the latest sustainable seafood recommendations and to download the free smartphone app
  3. When you buy seafood, please make choices in support of a healthy ocean - and support business who are too. Below is a list of good resources, including recommended Bay Area restaurants. These local Seafood Watch partner restaurants have taken a pledge to only serve items that are Seafood Watch approved. 
  4. Ask your fellow seafood connoisseurs to join you in supporting a healthy ocean!
