Sustainable Seafood in Portland, OR

Our commitment to sustainability and environmentally friendly practices extends from our farmers and growers to how we reduce, reuse and recycle


Many restaurants throw around “sustainability” as a buzzword. Far too few actually follow the spirit behind the name.

At Southpark Seafood, sustainability never has been and never will be a buzzword; it’s part of our core. As a multi-generational company, we are acutely aware of the importance of leaving this world better for our children. We simply cannot allow the wonderful food choices on our menu to one day contribute to extinction or the degradation of our planet. We’re proud to support sustainable practices throughout every part of our restaurant.

Because of our commitment to using resources in a sustainable way, in 2013 we teamed up with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch, an organization that tracks and catalogs what fish are caught by which method. From their guide, our restaurant features only best choices and good alternatives, so that we only take from the sea what it is able to replenish.

Southpark’s management team, green team and staff are committed to doing business responsibly. Some of our sustainability practices include:

  • Compost of all food waste
  • Recycling of all cooking oil
  • Avoiding of any unnecessary packaging
  • Recycling of cardboard, cans, glass and paper
  • Compostable trash can liners
  • Straws made from corn
  • Bar picks made of wood
  • Compostable to-go containers
  • Menus, comment cards and letterhead made from post consumer materials
