Monterey Bay Seafood Watch
With a new year brings renewed commitments to sustainability. A cornerstone of our commitment to sustainability would be our participation in the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Seafood Watch. As a restaurant partner, Urban Famer Portland commits to no longer serving items from the red “Avoid” list in addition to training our staff members to help raise awareness.
The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program creates science-based recommendations that help consumers and businesses make ocean-friendly seafood choices.
Buy first; they’re well managed and caught or farmed responsibly.
Buy, but be aware there are concerns with how they’re caught or farmed.
Take a pass on these for now; they’re overfished or caught or farmed in ways that harm other marine life or the environment.
