Nobody has been more proactive than the Vancouver Aquarium in educating diners (and chefs) about the need to eat only sustainable species. True to its own Ocean Wise program, the Stanley Park marine institution’s UpStream Café serves up tastes such as tuna melt and locally caught cod for fish ’n’ chips. Not only that but all plates, cups and cutlery are 100 percent compostable and packaging is kept to a minimum. Other aquatically responsible advocates include Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar, Zen Japanese Restaurant and Coast Restaurant.—Tim Pawsey
