About the Sustainable Seafood Initiative:
Designed to promote the use of local and sustainable seafood in South Carolina’s restaurants, the Sustainable Seafood Initiative helps ensure that consumers have fish for the future by teaching our partner chefs about sustainable and local seafood, assessing their menus, and encouraging consumers to dine at our partner restaurants. The Sustainable Seafood Initiative pragmatically balances the needs of the environment with the world population’s need for seafood. We believe that we can lessen the impact we have on the oceans by making wise seafood choices and encouraging improvement of fishing and fish-farming methods. The Sustainable Seafood Initiative is made possible through the generosity of sponsors, especially our Champion sponsors The Boathouse at Breach Inlet, Fleet Landing Restaurant & Bar and Hank’s Seafood Restaurant.
