Other places involved include our Portuguese neighbour, Macau, China and the Big Apple: New York.

Crave Fishbar (New York City)
If you happen to be in New York this month, be sure to visit Crave Fishbar, where the seafood is locally caught and the ingredients are organic. Serving high-quality seafood sourced with their eco-conscious philosophy, their love for sustainability extends to a saying of theirs: ”sustainable because we give a shuck”. The stylish restaurant, located both in Midtown and Upper West Side Manhattan, is also partnered with several organisations to ensure that their seafood remains sustainable.
