About the South Carolina Aquarium’s Sustainable Seafood Initiative:
What is Sustainable Seafood? Sustainable Seafood refers to fish that are caught or farmed with consideration for the long-term viability of individual marine species and for the oceans' ecological balance as a whole.  In other words, sustainable seafood is fish for the future.
 
What is the Sustainable Seafood Initiative? The Sustainable Seafood Initiative, a conservation program of the South Carolina Aquarium, teaches chefs about sustainable seafood and how the decisions they make today can ensure that we have fish in the future.  We also support the use of seafood produced by the U.S. fishing industry, which follows conservation-based regulations that are not often required by other countries.  Participating restaurants make every effort to obtain seafood from sustainable and, whenever possible, domestic and local sources.  In addition, they agree to not serve or sell Chilean sea bass, orange roughy and imported shark because of concerns regarding the status of these species in the wild.  Since its inception in 2002, the Sustainable Seafood Initiative has grown to include more than 80 restaurant partners in Charleston, Beaufort, Hilton Head, the Grand Strand and the Upstate.

About The Sea Island Grill:
Romantic and Intimate, easily one of Charleston’s top seafood restaurants. The Sea Island Grill, located in Wild Dunes Resort’s award-winning Boardwalk Inn, serves fresh local seafood and regional Lowcountry specialties in an upscale yet relaxed atmosphere. The lounge offers an upscale atmosphere with cigars, single barrel bourbon and single malt scotch.
