Keith hopes that by Oceans Day, June 8, at least a few restaurants at Whistler will also be supporting the Sierra Clubs seafood guide. Hes probably right, since establishments like Araxi and Rim Rock Café have been saying no to compromised products like farmed salmon for years.
In fact, Araxi along with Jack Evrensels entire Top Table Group, which includes Cin-Cin, Blue Water Café and West in Vancouver, have for years only been serving sustainably harvested seafood. Theyre currently reviewing the guide. Maybe by June 8 a few of us citizens will be honouring oceans on Oceans Day by supporting it, too.
