Tortuga Music Festival and Marine Conservation: Where to Find Sustainable Seafood in Broward and Palm Beach Counties

Starting tomorrow Tortuga Music Festival  will be taking over Fort Lauderdale. Artists ranging from Grace Potter, Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite, and G. Love and Special Sauce to Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Avett Brothers, and Kenny Chesney will be playing right smack dab on the beach.

Aside from the obvious music aspect, the festival, hosted by Rock the Oceans, an oceanic conservation organization, is intended to raise awareness about issues affecting, you got it, the oceans.

Undoubtedly, overfishing would fall into that category.

With that, we decided to put together a list of place to find sustainable seafood in South Florida.

Executive Chef Nick Morfogen draws inspiration from famed farm-to-table pioneer, Alice Waters. So it should come as no surprise that he places a rather large emphasis on local, seasonal, and sustainable products--that's right, seafood included. Although not everything is local all of the time, Morforgen does work with purveyors that work with sustainable seafood.
