      Wine for Waves takes place at tonight (April 13), giving Vancouverites a chance to get out of the rain and into an evening of wining and dining to raise funds for the Ocean Wise Seafood Program.

      Overfishing is one of the biggest threats to the world’s seas. The Ocean Wise symbol next to a seafood item on a menu is an assurance of an ocean-friendly choice.
