Smart Catch is a sustainable seafood program created by chefs for chefs with the purpose of increasing the sustainability of the seafood supply chain. With more than 90 percent of the world's fisheries either fully fished of overfished, preserving marine life to assure stable fishing stocks and promoting sustainably farmed options is more important than ever. 

The idea for Smart Catch is simple and powerful: the program provides training and support to chefs so they can serve seafood fished or farmed in environmentally-responsible ways. By earning the Smart Catch emblem, chefs give consumers a simple way to identify and support their restaurants.

Through Smart Catch, chefs have a chance to use their influence to lead industry efforts to maintain healthy, sustainable food sources both for now and for future generations. They will be able to expand not only our palates, but also our views. 

The list of chefs and participating chefs is available below. If you would like to join this initiative, please email smartcatch@jamesbeard.org. For updates on the program please follow #SmartCatch on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
