Rationale and Aim for the Kin Hong Seafood Festival

The goal of the Kin Hong Seafood Festival in November, 2015, is to build public knowledge of sustainable seafood, why we should care about what we are eating, and where that comes from. We aim to involve seafood retailers, consumers, restaurateurs and suppliers in creative events that will provide education about seafood sustainability. This event will provide an opportunity for the public to experience sustainable products first hand, which will be provided via restaurants or catering companies.  In working with the F&B industry, the aim is to facilitate restaurateurs in gaining access to sustainable seafood and to increase availability and visibility in the market place.  (Scrool down for information in Chinese and for a list of Participating Restaurants)

Kin Hong Sustainable Seafood Festival – (November - 2015)

The Kin Hong Seafood Festival is being held for the month of November in Hong Kong.  Kin Hong means healthy in Chinese, and symbolizes the need for having healthy seafood, from a healthy process of fishing or cultivation.   The Festival will be organised by Ocean Recovery Alliance, a Hong Kong non-profit organization, in collaboration with the Marine Stewardship Council (www.msc.org) and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) (http://www.asc-aqua.org/), both of which are the primary organisations responsible for setting standards and certifying sustainable seafood globally.  The event is funded by ADM Capital Foundation, which supports programs that help support the improvement of the ocean environment and communities that survive from the resources that the ocean provides. For the Kin Hong Seafood Festival in November, *participating organisations will be allowed to use the MSC and ASC Ecolabels at their premises to raise awareness with their customers.

The Kin Hong Seafood Festival will involve at least 30 restaurants, specifically in Hong Kong’s key dining locations to gain maximum exposure. The restaurants would commit to providing at least one certified sustainable seafood dish on their menus for the duration of the month, and would be able to use the MSC and ASC logos as appropriate. Guidance/connections will be provided regarding sustainable seafood suppliers.
