The evening will feature delectable dining options from Ocean Wise restaurants such as: Aqua Riva, Bishop’s, Blue Water Cafe & Raw Bar, C Restaurant, Culinary Capers Catering, Grouse Mountain: The Observatory, A Kettle of Fish, Le Gavroche Restaurant, Oâ€™Doulâ€™s Restaurant & Bar, Vancouver Aquarium Catering, Wild Rice, Zen Japanese Restaurant, and the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts.
Over the last few years I have become re-acquainted with the Vancouver Aquarium and the work that they do. I’ve been fortunate enough to attend events, talk to staff, and even tour the jellyfish labs to learn more. Their mission is clear as they remain dedicated to research, conservation and education. Through the work that they do in Vancouver, across the province, through Ocean Wise, and things like the Shoreline Cleanup, I believe they are an organization worth supporting.
