1.Attend the Ocean Wise Chowder Chowdown in Vancouver (February 20) or Toronto (February 26). Watch top chefs compete to make the best sustainable seafood chowder, taste and vote for your favourites, and sip on local craft beer, wine and spirits. Get your tickets here before they sell out! 

2.Follow @OceanWiseLife on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. Share our posts and spread the word about sustainable seafood. Use tag @OceanWiseLife and #OceanWiseMonth for a chance to be featured on our stories.
