To mark the special occasion, C’s Chef du Cuisine Lee Humphries has created a Wild BC Spot Prawn menu to go with this year’s catch.

“When I started advocating for sustainable seafood eight years ago, the joy and celebration surrounding Wild BC Spot Prawns is something I had hoped for,” explains Chef Robert Clark, “It’s been a great success working with the Wild BC Spot Prawn fishery. They are a prime model for all fisheries to follow. With support from restaurants like C, ocean-friendly seafood is starting to become the norm.”
Recognized by the David Suzuki Foundation/Seachoice program as a BEST CHOICE, the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program as GREEN, and the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch as a BEST CHOICE, Wild BC Spot Prawns are a great catch. This fishery is kept sustainable by enforcing maximum trap volumes, limiting the number of licenses and the number of traps per license, funding scientific research through licensing fees, and running effective monitoring programs.
