Godiva's on Bravo

West Coast Seafood
Today I featured Gord Martin of the Go Fish Wild Ocean Emporium, located in the parking lot of the False Creek Harbour Authorities Fisherman's Wharf.

I also spoke with Rick Burns of the Pacific Provider. Although the boat is going into drydock, he still has some high quality boneless and skinless spring salmon fillets for sale. Call 604-988-4757.

And, coming soon, fresh sea urchin roe, or uni, from Divers Direct Seafoods Ltd. (site under construction).

Ocean Wise
This week I talked about Ocean Wise, a new program designed to make it easy for both restaurants and their clientele to make environmentally responsible seafood choices.
