Preservation Kitchen Commits To Sustainable Seafood Program
Preservation Kitchen, 17121 Bothell Way, Bothell

Preservation Kitchen Logo With more than 90% of the world's fisheries either fully fished or overfished, preserving marine life to assure stable fishing stocks and promoting sustainable farmed options is more important than ever. Since U.S consumers buy the vast majority of their seafood from restaurants, approaching sustainability from this industry has the potential to make a huge impact. 'Smart Catch' was originally created as a pilot program in Seattle by Paul G. Allen in 2015 as part of the philanthropist's effort to make change on the water. 'Smart Catch' is now part of the James Beard Foundation's Impact Programs, which aim to establish a more sustainable food system through education, advocacy and thought leadership.

As an official James Beard Foundation 'Smart Catch' restaurant, Preservation Kitchen in Bothell's historic Kayser Building, has committed to serving seafood fished or farmed through environmentally responsible practices and has reached the goal of 80% or more sustainability on back-to-back menu assessments.
