Sustainable Seafood Research Assistant

Help us build a database of sustainable seafood in Hong Kong by communicating with the F&B industry (commitment time flexible)

Project Details

What we need

  • Contacting restaurants to ask about their sustainable seafood provision
  • Making enquiries about the origins of seafood found in Hong Kong's restaurants

Background

We all love to eat seafood in Hong Kong - but have you ever considered where your seafood comes from? More than 90% of the world's oceans are already considered over- or fully- exploited. As a city with one of the highest per capita seafood consumption in the world, our choice as consumers can make a real impact on the survival of marine species."Sustainable seafood" provides an alternative for seafood-lovers to continue enjoying what they love, without further endangering marine animals that are already threatened with extinction. In this project, we will build a database of all the restaurants where you can find and enjoy sustainable seafood in Hong Kong. Help us build this database to give conscious consumers the option to eat sustainably!
