Praise be, Seattle: it's getting much easier to eat seafood with a conscience. A few weeks back, Eater brought news of the new national Smart Catch campaign by Paul Allen that trains chefs and restaurant staffs on sustainable seafood and requires a 90 percent compliance with the latest environmental standards. This is a huge boon for sustainability-focused diners who used to have to make calls on their own, examining the seafood offerings in restaurants with Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch checklist in hand.

Now comes word that Seattle will host a full Sustainable Seafood Week August 3 through 8, featuring prix fixe and special menu items at over 40 local restaurants, an opening gala at the aquarium, blue educational pop-up tents throughout the city, and other events. This is not a Smart Catch event, but the participating restaurants are all Smart Catch participants. Check out the full schedule and all the participating restaurants (including Anchovies and OlivesRay's BoathouseThe Walrus and the CarpenterDahlia Lounge, and more) here.
