We’re Partnering with Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch®; Committing to Serve Only Ocean-Friendly Seafood Today

Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa & Convention Center is going even more ocean-friendly. We’re partnering with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program. We’ll now be serving only seafood caught or farmed in safe ways.

“The last thing we want to do is over-fish,” says Hotel General Manager Leon Garrison. “That’s why we’re making this important change.”

Our seafood choices affect the world’s fish populations. Seafood Watch empowers consumers and businesses to make choices for a healthy ocean. They assess how wild-caught and farmed seafood affect the environment.

“We want to be leaders in this initiative,” says Garrison. “Now, we’re calling others in Galveston and the Houston area to do the same thing. We need to take care of our fisheries so that we have seafood forever.”
