SANTA MONICA – Seafood and ocean lovers unite! Santa Monica is celebrating National Seafood month with with their annual OFF THE HOOK Seafood Festival, presented by Capital One. On Saturday, October 14th from 4-7, Santa Monica Pier will transform into a seafood lovers dream. Food from some of Santa Monica’s best restaurants like Tar & Roses, FIG, The Lobster, BOA, Sushi Roku, Herringbone, Spinfish Poke, and Red O will be among the places to eat.
Additionally, environmentalists can rejoice because the OFF THE HOOK Seafood Festival has a dual purpose. Aside from bringing the most delicious seafood all to one place, OFF THE HOOK is also partnering with the Surfrider Los Angeles Chapter to raise awareness and money to keep our oceans and beaches clean.
“In an effort to help build a more sustainable future, this year’s event will be free of all single-use plastic containers using all recyclable cups, straws and disposable items. We hope that all who attend this event will not only enjoy great seafood, but learn about ways to reduce their single-use plastic footprint in their everyday lives and help build a more sustainable future for ocean ecosystems,” said Graham Hamilton, the Surfrider Los Angeles Chapter Coordinator in a press release.
The event will also honor three outstanding people involved in the sustainable seafood movement. Festival goers can meet with them and learn more about how to lead a more sustainable life.
