Sustainable Seafood in Auburn-Opelika

If you’re a crazed seafood fan and like your fish free of additives, then you’re in luck!  The conversation about sustainable seafood is trending and several organizations in the Auburn-Opelika area such as Zazu Gastropub, Stinky’s Fish Camp, The Depot and even the upcoming Alabama Oyster Social are joining in to strengthen our oceans and the environment.

As this drive toward eating sustainable meals continues, customers are making the choice to eat at sustainable restaurants when going out. Sustainable farming focuses on raising food that is healthy for consumers, and making the choice to eat sustainably can greatly impact our environment and better aid our oceans. By living and eating sustainably, we can better promote our personal health.

There can be consequences when it comes to consuming fishy fish, such as consuming unnecessary amounts of mercury. Finding the right type of fish and the right restaurant that offers that type is beneficial for every sea species and every person’s well being.

Not only does eating sustainable seafood help individuals and their health, but it also helps out our local farmers. Eating sustainably rewards the efforts of the farmers who provide us with the freshest and most viable seafood available. 

The Depot, Zazu Gastropub, and Stinky’s Fish Camp all strive to set a high standard for other restaurants in the Auburn-Opelika area. Want to read more about seafood sustainability and how you can be a part of the movement to eating fresh fish free of additives?
