I had a chance to taste the new Oceanwise menu that was created to launch Vancouver Fish Co partnership with the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program. As their restaurant’s mission is to serve only the freshest and sustainably sourced seafood, they are thrilled to finally be part of a fantastic organization whose main goal is to ensure the health of our oceans for generations to come.
