Celebrate Coral Triangle Day by Dining Responsibly with Chef Bobby Chinn in Bali on Saturday, June 9, 2012


(6/1/2012)

New Zealand celebrity chef, restaurateur and TV host Bobby Chinn will travel to Bali to join local celebrations of Coral Triangle Day on June 9, 2012, and help promote the virtues of eating and harvesting the ocean’s bounty in a sustainable and responsible way.

Explaining the Coral Triangle movement and his motivations for his coming Bali visit, Bobby Chinn said: “The Coral Triangle Day is about celebrating the wonders of our oceans and what individuals can do to help protect it. As a chef, I would like to do my part by helping raise awareness on the importance of patronizing responsibly-caught seafood and the many creative ways to enjoy them.”

The Coral Triangle, which spans six countries in the Asia-Pacific includes Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Solomon Islands, and Timor Leste, which together represent  the combined home to more than 3,000 species of reef fish.

This region is also a nursery ground and migratory pathway for commercially-valuable tuna species such as Yellow Fin, Big Eye, and Skipjack - producing almost a fifth of the total global tuna catch.

However, impacts arising from overfishing and the use of destructive fishing practices are posing major challenges to the sustainability of Coral Triangle resources, on which more than 120 million people depend for food and livelihood.

Increasing demand for seafood from growing markets in Asia, North America, and Europe are quickly depleting the Coral Triangle’s fish stocks and impacting a fragile marine-ecosystems.

“Fish are being taken out of the seas faster than they can be replenished, and in highly destructive means. This is why we all need to be more conscious of the seafood on our plates and start asking questions on where they came from and how they were caught,” said Chinn.

“This is why I am proud to be part of the Coral Triangle Day so we can put the spotlight on the importance of oceans to our daily lives and take action to conserve it,” added Chinn.

Bobby will be making special appearances and doing cooking demonstrations at selected restaurants in Seminyak, Bali including Gado Gado Restaurant, Metis Restaurant and Semara Resort and Spa.

He will also take his message to the people by visiting local village restaurants in Kedonganan at Bali’s popular seafood center of Jimbaran Bay.

Join Bobby Chinn at Metis Restaurant

Bobby Chinn will presdie at a Special Aperochic event on Saturday, June 9, 2012, at Metis Restaurant.

An informal event of late afternoon drinks and refreshment, Aperochic happens from 5:30 - 8:00 pm. The cost is only Rp. 50,000 ++ (US$6.50).

For reservations and more information call Metis Restaurant at ++62-(0)361-4737888.

The TV host and restaurateur will be preparing mouth-watering dishes using responsibly sourced seafood including grouper, prawns, and tuna and other locally sourced ingredients.

Coral Triangle Day 

Coral Triangle Day brings together individuals, organizations, and establishments across different parts of the region on a single day to celebrate the beauty and uniqueness of the region and to promote the importance of the oceans through varied activities including: beach clean-ups; sustainable seafood dinners; educational exhibitions; marine-themed bazaars; and beach parties.
