The Seafood Shack’s Chef Gerard Jesse is pleased to announce a formal partnership with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program, supporting The Shack’s on-going commitment to serve only seafood caught or farmed in ocean-friendly ways.
Seafood Watch empowers consumers and businesses to make choices for healthy oceans. Using science-based, peer reviewed methods, Seafood Watch assesses how wild-caught and farmed seafood affect the environment and provides recommendations indicating which items are “Best Choices,” “Good Alternatives,” and which ones to “Avoid.”
As a Seafood Watch business partner, The Seafood Shack pledges to serve only seafood rated a “Best Choice” or “Good Alternative” and to educate its customers, suppliers and employees about sustainability issues. By partnering with Seafood Watch, Chef Jesse reflects his awareness about growing public concern with how our seafood choices affect the world’s fish populations and the impact of seafood production on ocean health.
The Seafood Shack restaurant is currently closed on Mondays through mid-October to allow for some housekeeping and maintenance inside the restaurant and kitchen. Many other locally-operated establishments reduce their hours and/or temporarily close during this post-summer season for rest and repairs, so make sure you call ahead just to make sure.
