Sustainable Seafood Expo
Actor Adrian Grenier of “Entourage” fame will make a special appearance
at Cabrillo Marine Aquarium’s 3rd Annual Sustainable Seafood Expo, an
event designed to help consumers choose the right fish for their
dish—one that’s good for their bodies and for the environment. As
co-founder of the Lonely Whale Foundation, Grenier will share his
efforts to inspire empathy towards marine species and develop lifelong
advocates for ocean health.
Baran’s 2239, one of the hottest new
restaurants in the South Bay, will be serving scrumptious seafood
samples, along with 22nd Street Landing, Parker’s Lighthouse,
Gladstone’s Long Beach, Ports O’Call Waterfront Dining and other top
local restaurants. Perennial favorite Executive Chef Bernard Ibarra of
Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes is back again this year to wow the crowd
with his culinary skills. And Executive Chef Dustin Trani of J. Trani’s
Ristorante in San Pedro is serving sustainable fare during an exclusive
chef’s table dinner immediately following the Expo.
advanced-sale tickets are available now at

Aquarium and its Friends organization, is Southern California’s only
major sustainable seafood event and takes place noon to 5 p.m. Sunday,
Oct. 2 at CRAFTED at the Port of Los Angeles, 112 E. 22nd St., San
Pedro. The event space will be air conditioned.
Seafood Month event is sponsored by The Negri Foundation, Phillips 66,

Angeles, and Supervisor Don Knabe. Featured are more than 40 exhibitors and sustainable seafood
sampling booths, including a growing list of local restaurants, seafood
purveyors and others.
Choosing the right fish can have a positive
impact on the marine environment and Cabrillo Marine Aquarium leads the
way in educating local consumers, chefs and restaurateurs on this
critical topic. The Expo provides great opportunities to sample new
seafood options while learning how to make the best selections when
dining out or purchasing seafood. Experts will be on hand to explain
fisheries, habitats, species, management, and a host of other factors
that affect each species. The goal is to help sustain wild, diverse and
healthy ocean ecosystems that will exist long into the future.
