Smarter Seafood promotes little-known species of the St. Lawrence from a sustainable consumption perspective. Each year, with the recommendations of marine researchers and biologists, Exploramer establishes a list of marine species that meet four criteria:
- The species is edible;
- In sufficient quantity in the St. Lawrence;
- The fishing technique is respectful of the seabed;
- The species needs a little help to become better known.
With the Smarter Seafood certification, Quebec restaurants and fish markets agree to promote little-known but delicious and nutritious marine species.
Look for and taste marine products with the Smarter Seafood symbol on restaurant menus and fish markets. Beautiful gourmet discoveries to come!
