The biggest threat facing our oceans today is overfishing. While the populations of some types of fish and seafood are managed very sustainably, other ocean products are dangerously overharvested. Our seafood choices today matter to the health of our oceans for generations to come! How can you know whether you’re making ocean-friendly choices? Simple. Just look for the Ocean Wise symbol at your local Thrifty Foods store.
The Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program works with retailers, restaurants, markets, food services and suppliers to provide up-to-date scientific information to consumers about sustainable seafood. We are proud to have been one of the first, and currently one of the largest, grocery retailers in BC to partner with Ocean Wise. Based on their advice and oversight, we label all of our ocean-friendly fish and seafood with the Ocean Wise symbol, making it easy for you to make sustainable seafood choices.
