Jane’s cookbook is called “Ocean Wise: Seafood Recipes that are Good for the Planet”

In The Ocean Wise Cookbook, freelance writer Jane Mundy compiles together some of the most popular recipes from chefs and restaurants from all across Canada. Jane shows us that no matter what kind of seafood you need for a recipe, you can help sustain our oceans and the environment by making positive choices.

Ocean Wise is a nation-wide conservation program designed to educate restaurants and consumers about the issues surrounding sustainable seafood. Created by the renowned Vancouver Aquarium, Ocean Wise has an affiliation with restaurants, markets, suppliers and food services, striving to ensure that everyone works together to make ocean-friendly buying choices in an environmentally conscious world.
