Santa Barbara's Sustainable Seafood Program

The Museum of Natural History's Ty Warner Sea Center has initiated a sustainable seafood program here locally with a partnership with the Monterey Bay Aquarium and a little financial help from Patagonia.
MISSION: To help the Santa Barbara community make conscientious seafood choices that support sustainable and environmentally sensitive fisheries.
...We want to shift our community’s seafood consumption to sustainable sources, consumer by consumer and restaurant by restaurant.

By helping restaurants and markets replace unsustainable seafood items with sustainable ones, we hope to shift thousands of dollars spent supporting unsustainable fisheries to supporting the new sustainable seafood movement. -
