Sustainable Food Options

Make sure that all seafood you offer is sustainably caught, that as much of your menu is as locally sourced as possible, and that vegetarian alternatives are available.

When it comes to the fish you offer, do your research. Ask yourself these five questions:

     1. What type of gear was used to catch this fish or shellfish?
     2. How much bycatch does this gear usually cause?
     3. Does this gear type damage marine habitats?
     4. Where on food chain does this species fall?
     5. Is it wild or farm-raised?

To fulfill this Best Practice do at least one of the following:

  • Work with catering company to offer locally sourced or organic foods.
  • Ensure that all seafood is sustainably sourced.
  • Offer vegetarian alternatives to lower menu’s carbon footprint.
