Screaming Tuna Commits to Sustainable Seafood
Screaming Tuna, a sushi and Asian bistro in Milwaukee’s Third Ward neighborhood, has committed to operating in a more environmentally sustainable manner, beginning with sourcing seafood that is fished or farmed in ways that minimize environmental impact and assure safe fish populations. Using the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch’s “avoid” list, the restaurant will limit the species it carries. Screaming Tuna is the first Wisconsin restaurant to collaborate with the Seafood Watch program.
According to Seafood Watch, nearly 85 percent of the world’s fisheries are fished to capacity or overfished. Seafood Watch provides educational resources to help individuals and businesses make choices that encourage sustainability of diverse and healthy ocean ecosystems.
“As a sushi restaurant and as inhabitants of this planet, we can ill afford to think of the oceans as an unlimited stockpile of resources,” notes Cristian Vega, manager of Screaming Tuna. “We could not do what we do without the ocean’s bounty of seafood. We know that at the current rate of depletion, future purveyors of sushi and future inhabitants of this planet will not have our same opportunities because of the mistakes of those that came before them.”
