Marriott's 'Future Fish' a nod towards SSI

According to USA Today's Dec. 23 edition Marriott International has launched 'Future Fish' in an effort to source at least 50% of their seafood from certified sustainable fisheries. The Sustainable Seafood Initiative is catching on due to customer demand, and one such offering on hotel menus is wreckfish, under the term Carolina stone bass. The Lowcountry has a strong SSI presence thanks to mindful restauranteurs and the work of the Aquarium, and the fact that the wreckfish from just off our coast are part of a sustainable species is thanks to careful regulation. "The guest is asking what the fish is and where it is coming from," said Brad Nelson, Marriott's culinary vice president. To view past blog entries about SSI follow the links.
