New OFR Opening in October!
Pacific Catch (UTC Westfield)
Surfrider-San Diego Chapter is proud to welcome Pacific Catch as our newest Ocean Friendly Restaurant. Myself, along with Surfrider OFR Volunteer, Fawn Liebengood, had the pleasure of performing a compliance check for Pacific Catch – San Diego. We both saw first hand the amazing efforts made by Pacific Catch to be an Ocean Friendly Restaurant. They actually have a Director of Sustainability who helps all their restaurants implement sustainable practices. For example: monitoring best choices for purchasing fish according to Seafood Watch, installing energy saving tankless hot water heaters and collecting their grease to be used as biofuel, just to name a few.
Comments from the restaurant:
“Born out of the spirit of adventure, Pacific is a West Coast Fish House dedicated to delivering high quality sustainable seafood. Our menu explores a diverse range of flavors and ingredients from around the Pacific Rim, all served with Aloha-inspired hospitality.”
Launch Party Fundraiser
Pacific Catch has 11 locations in Northern California and will soon be opening their first Southern California location in La Jolla (UTC/Westfield area) sometime in October. Keep an eye out for a Pacific Catch Pre-Launch Party invite in mid-October for all our Surfrider members and volunteers. You will get a 75% discount on your bill and the 25% that you do pay will be donated to the Surfrider Foundation. This is an amazing fundraising opportunity for Surfrider, so please look for the invite and come join us for a fun evening of delicious food and good company.
