What is Responsible Seafood?
"Responsible seafood" is defined as seafood from sources, whether fished or farmed, that can maintain or increase production without jeopardizing the structure and function of affected ecosystems. This means that the seafood was harvested in a way that doesn't harm wild populations or the surrounding environment.
Why is it important for us to offer responsible seafood?
By offering environmentally-responsible seafood, we are committing to protecting the ocean and its inhabitants. This guarantees that seafood is available for generations to come.
Destructive fishing and farming practices are resulting in habitat damage, overfishing, pollution, the catch of non-targeted species, and other environmental impacts. By carefully researching and working with our purveyors, we are able to make responsible choices that reduce these detrimental impacts.
Does sustainable seafood taste different?
At Lucky Robot, our goal for each dish is to be, most importantly, delicious. By moving our seafood choices to sustainable alternatives, we push ourselves to research new and innovative preparations, fish choices, and flavors. We welcome you to try unique bites like our Chiki Toro (sustainable alternative to o-toro) or namazu (unagi-style bbq catfish).
