The Québec maritime Blog
During your next stay in the maritime regions of Québec, be sure to look for the Smarter Seafood logo, which designates restaurants and fish markets that support the sustainable development of the St. Lawrence.
Created in 2009, Smarter Seafood is an certification program that encourages the diversification of fish and seafood consumption in order to reduce the overfishing of certain species. Keep an eye out for the blue fork logo and discover unique and relatively unknown marine species!
The list of marine species that are certified Smarter Seafood is drawn up by the Exploramer team using a scientifically sound methodology; it is then approved by a committee of socio-scientific experts. Click here for the certified species list.
Each year, Exploramer also certify restaurants and fish markets that are contributing to the sustainable development of the St. Lawrence. Certified businesses are committed to introducing their customers to edible marine species that are present in sufficient quantities in the St. Lawrence, are relatively unknown to consumers and are fished using techniques that don’t disturb the seabed.
