New App Helps Find Restaurants Serving Sustainable Seafood

28 August 2014

GLOBAL - Friend of the Sea has launched a new App – Friend of the Sea Seafood – to help consumers search for restaurants serving Friend of the Sea certified seafood. The app is currently available in English and Italian and it's compatible with Android and iOS.

The App database provides users with the most current listing of Friend of the Sea sustainable seafood products and restaurants.

Search results include restaurants description, a link to their websites, contact details and of course the sustainable Friend of the Sea certified seafood served by the restaurant. An extra feature allows mobile users to geo-locate the restaurant.

App users can also find all Friend of the Sea labelled products. Products are identified per common and scientific name, producer or supplier, country, fishing or farming method and product type (aquaculture, fishery, omega 3, fish feed, fish meal, fish oil).

Restaurants serving Friend of the Sea certified products and not yet listed, can fill in their application form in the Italian and English version.

“We appreciate restaurants help in supporting seafood coming from sustainable fishing and farming practices,” says Mr Paolo Bray, Director of Friend of the Sea.

“We will promote their environmental awareness to consumers and media globally."
