Every Thursday during happy hour we'll be featuring a different Ocean Wise seafood or shellfish and we'll have our local fishermen and women, shellfish farmers or our kitchen team on hand to share some stories and tricks of the trade over a drink and some happy hour snacks.
For this edition of Seafood Sessions, we are thrilled to have our partners from Ocean Wise, Claire & Tania, joining us at Coquille to share their knowledge and expertise with our guests. Ocean Wise is an organization committed to educating and encouraging consumers to make sustainable seafood choices to ensure healthy oceans for future generations to come.
The star this week is a local, sustainably farmed crustacean: Pacific White-Legged shrimp from Berezan Shrimp Company. This species of shrimp is native to the Southwest Pacific Ocean. Due to the threat of over-fishing, this species of shrimp has the highest rate of aquafarming worldwide. Berezan is passionate about protecting natural eco-systems and has built an inland, closed-containment farm in Langley, B.C. with an aim to be an environmentally friendly, non-ocean impacting source for quality seafood.
Reservations and walk-in guests are all welcome.
