Sustainable Seafood

Aquarium of the Bay helped found and leads the San Francisco Bay Area Sustainable Seafood Alliance. Aquarium of the Bay is committed to educating our guests about sustainable seafood and the impact of personal choice. Throughout the year, we work with partners at Monterey Bay Aquarium, California Academy of Sciences, the San Francisco Zoo, and The Marine Mammal Center to promote and enhance the sustainable seafood movement in the Bay Area, while providing regional support for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program.
