“Umi no Sachi: The Bounty of the Ocean” will be presented on Thursday, Oct. 3, from 7 to 10 p.m. at Los Angeles River Center & Gardens, 570 W. Avenue 26, Los Angeles.

Join Little Tokyo Service Center and the Natural Resources Defense Council-Los Angeles for an evening of great food from L.A.’s top sustainable seafood restaurants. Chefs from the restaurants Holbox, Azay, Mama Musubi, Ise-Shima, Heirloom LA and others will showcase their best sustainable dishes while sharing how their practices help protect our oceans.

Seafood is a vital part of Japanese and Japanese American culture, and today there is a growing movement to embrace seafood sustainability. At the same time, the Japanese traditional culture has practices to share and contribute to the sustainable movement, e.g., introducing a diversity of seafood, not wasting and eating the “whole” fish while preserving the freshness of seafood.
