30% of global fish stocks are overexploited, 60% are fully exploited. To mark World Oceans Day, more than 200 Relais & Châteaux chefs are demonstrating their long-standing commitment to protecting marine resources and fighting overfishing, a pledge they honor by cooking unknown fishes.
Between Sonora Resort's luxury lodge in the pristine Discovery Islands and the most elegant camping experience at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort in Tofino, Vancouver Island's Relais and Chateaux properties bring visitors up close and personal with bears, whales, elk, sea lions and bald eagles.
For many, it is the animals of the world that spur them to journey across lands and seas, the wild, unhabituated and miraculously varied Animal Kingdom that lures them from destination to destination.
From the North Sea, the English Channel, the Mediterranean, the China Sea, to the Pacific, not a month goes by without scientists around the world alerting us to the gradual disappearance of wild fish. Should we be worried? Definitely. Can we do something about it? Most certainly.
