Seafood is part of the heart and soul of the Charleston and the Lowcountry. And to make sure that there are enough fish in the oceans for us to eat and for the fish species to thrive, the wonderful SC Aquarium has created a sustainable seafood initiative (Good Catch) — partnering with some of Charleston’s fantastic restaurants to encourage them to to serve local, seasonal seafood in ways that benefit both them and prevents the depletion of the fisheries.
On Friday, February 6th, the Aquarium is hosting the Good Catch Oyster Fest to help support this initiative. It’s one-of-a-kind oyster festival featuring some of Charleston’s best local cuisine. There will be responsibly-sourced oysters from St. Jude Farms; sustainable seafood dishes from Good Catch partners Fish Restaurant , Fleet Landing Restaurant & Bar and Pane e Vino; a full bar including craft beer from Holy City Brewing; and live bluegrass music by The Bluestone Ramblers. The cost is $40 for general admission and $30 for Aquarium members.
Not only is this a good cause, if you haven’t been to an event at the Aquarium, it’s quite the scene! You can find more information here.
