OCEANA’s global campaign, Save the Oceans: Feed the World, will be publically backed by twenty chefs from some of the world’s best restaurants.

The official launch, which will take place in San Sebastian, Spain on Tuesday 17th March 2015, will be hosted by Andoni Luiz Aduriz of Mugaritz and Joan Roca of El Celler de Can Roca, Spain. It will be attended by Ferran Adrià (elBulli Foundation, Spain); Massimo Bottura (Osteria Francescana, Italy); Daniel Humm (Eleven Madison Park, USA); Ashley Palmer-Watts (Dinner by Heston Blumenthal, UK); Alex Atala (D.O.M., Brazil); Juan Mari and Elena Arzak (Arzak, Spain), Pedro Subijana (Akelare, Spain); Grant Achatz (Alinea, USA); Brett Graham (The Ledbury, UK); Joachim Wissler (Vendôme, Germany); Heinz Reitbauer (Steirereck, Austria); Gastón Acurio (Astrid y Gastón, Peru); Enrique Olvera (Pujol, Mexico); Rodolfo Guzmán (Boragó, Chile); Normand Laprise (Toqué, Canada) and José Luis González (Gallery Vask, Philippines). René Redzepi (Noma, Denmark) will be unable to make the event but has also pledged his support for the campaign.

“It is truly amazing“ said Chef Aduriz, “that so many prominent chefs who are so hectically busy, are coming to San Sebastian on March 17. Chefs feel passionately about the importance of wild seafood, not just on the small scale and what it brings to our kitchens, but also because of its importance to the planet. I think we all just deeply feel the need to support this campaign and help make the oceans abundant again.”

The decline in wild fishing stocks has been well documented by scientists. Oceana is campaigning worldwide to save the ocean and feed the world. With 90 per cent of all the seafood caught in the world controlled by just 30 countries, Oceana are already gaining policy victories in many of these countries.

It has been estimated that if policy changes that stop overfishing, limit bycatch and protect habitat are passed in the top seafood countries, there could be enough seafood to provide one billion people with a healthy seafood meal each day.

“We are incredibly grateful that so many culinary superstars are coming together to announce their support for policy change that can help to restore the world’s oceans”, said Oceana CEO Andrew F. Sharpless, “We believe they can help to make a huge difference for Oceana’s campaigns and the hundreds of millions of people who depend on the world’s oceans for their sustenance.”
