Twenty Five Lusk, Hog Island Oyster Co., Fog Harbor Fish House, and Pier 23 Cafe are among the first local restaurants to participate in the America's Cup Healthy Ocean Project awareness campaign to promote ocean-friendly seafood among Bay-Area diners.
The America’s Cup Healthy Ocean Project is working with the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Aquarium of the Bay, The Golden Gate Restaurant Association, and OpenTable to help make sustainable seafood choices easier.
For the Summer of Racing, we are asking local restaurants to highlight sustainable seafood choices on their menus in exchange for promoting the restaurants to fans, spectators, teams, and partners.
"This is about creating awareness around an issue that directly affects the health of our ocean - and something as simple as what you eat for dinner can have a tremendous positive impact over time," said Jill McCarthy, Head of Partnerships for the America's Cup. "Having a healthy ocean is critical for our sport, as well as the health of our planet. Making sustainable seafood choices is a pillar of our Healthy Ocean Project campaign.”
The America’s Cup has made a strong commitment to only serve sustainable seafood at our events. We serve items from the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch Program® “Best Choices” list, which means they are abundant, well-managed and caught or farmed in environmentally friendly ways.
“We’re thrilled to partner with the America's Cup Healthy Ocean Project to raise awareness on sustainable seafood choices”, said Matthew Dolan, Executive Chef of San Francisco’s Twenty Five Lusk. “As partners of the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch Program®, serving sustainable seafood is part of our ethos. It's impressive that a major international sporting event shares our commitment to protecting the ocean."
