James Beard Smart Catch Program
Our vision at Third Wave is to provide the best quality food we can offer. We source much of our produce from local farms, and we now have become active members in the James Beard Foundation and Smart Catch Program.
Developed by Microsof co-founder and philanthropist Paul G. Allen, this program provides training and support to chefs so they can serve seafood fished or farmed in environmentally responsible ways.
"Smart Catch works to increase the amount of sustainable seafood sold throuh U.S. restaurants by addressing the many barriers to getting sustainable seafood on a diner's plate from reliable sources to chef training and comsumer awareness. The program also seeks to engage the chef community in effort to improve seafood both domestically and abroad".
We are certified in offering sustainably sourced Fish, Scallops, Shrimp, and Octopus. If you are interested in reading more about the program, visit the following website:
