Somewhere between the devil and the deep blue sea, a subdued cry rose to the surface of the waters, bringing a much-needed awareness to protect our fragile ecosystems.
Enter the San Diego Ocean Foundation (SDOF), a non-profit organization established to promote ocean stewardship with local community-based projects. Together with a bevy of local San Diego restaurants, businesses, and local fishing communities, they are committed to promoting seafood sustainability throughout the region, and are primed to bring us a week of conscientious dining.
Sustainable Seafood Week is set to kickoff with a seaworthy fundraiser this Thursday, March 7th. Hosted at SeaWorld San Diego, the 28th Annual Sustainable Seafood Gala promises an evening of splish-splashy festivities, and a taste of ethical enchantment under the sea.
Join over 500 guests to satiate your appetite and curiosities with a multisensory experience to include deep sea, eco-friendly dishes, hosted beers by Ballast Point Brewing, wines provided by Vesper Vineyards, and spirited cocktails from Snake Oil Cocktail Company. The evening will include silent auction packages, raffle prizes, photobooth opportunities, dolphin and ray interactions, and an all you can ride excuse to enjoy the new Manta roller coaster.
Take advantage of this opportunity to float about the celebrity chef stations to discuss your concerns about our fish populations and sustainable fish sourcing, while learning about the health benefits of eating seafood while avoiding fishery depletion.
