Celebrate seafood with our seasonal guide

Spring is well underway, and it’s time to enjoy some delicious, ocean-friendly seafood! Our seasonal seafood guide highlights three choices: Dungeness crab, farm raised striped bass and long-fin squid. These selections are delicious, sustainable and available right now. Look for your guide on the Celebrate Seafood page.

If you’re wondering how to prepare squid, be sure to check out the fabulous recipe included with the guide from Armand Toutaint, chef de cuisine at Turner Fisheries. As the chef at one of Boston’s leading restaurants, Armand knows a thing or two about squid. His calamari fried rice recipe is quick, delicious and ocean-friendly.

By choosing ocean-friendly seafood you can have an impact on ocean health and ensure that we will have plenty of seafood for years to come. So take a look, and then head to the store for some seasonal, ocean-friendly seafood – it’s the most delicious way to live blue™!

  1. I know this may sound silly, but there is something weird about the Aquarium posting a picture of a dead fish ready for dinner...

    1. Thanks for your feedback, Ricardo! In fact, you're not the first person to make that observation. We are just trying to remind folks that some ways of harvesting seafood are better for the oceans than others. In other words, the Aquarium promotes ocean-friendly seafood because we care so deeply about healthy oceans!
