Restaurant Training

WWF-SASSI offers engaging Seafood Sustainability training courses in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.  Since 2011, WWF-SASSI has trained over 1300 key players in the culinary and hospitality industry.

The WWF-SASSI Restaurant Training engages participants in the following topics:

  • The state of our marine resources in South Africa
  • Understanding the problems related to overfishing
  • Environmental concerns around aquaculture (fish farming)
  • WWF-SASSI’s sustainable seafood solutions
  • The benefits of sustainable seafood
  • How to implement WWF-SASSI’s guidelines in restaurants

Workshops and Talks

WWF-SASSI offers talks to chef schools, conservation organisations, educational institutes and community groups which cover the basic state of our marine resources in South Africa, explains the problems related to overfishing, the concerns around aquaculture, WWF-SASSI’s sustainable seafood solutions, the benefit of sustainable seafood and how individuals can make a change. This workshop is subset of the WWF-SASSI training, and can be adapted to different audiences as required.

WWF-SASSI also offers teachers and environmental educators  workshop around our Activity Book and Card Games. This allows learning about sustainable seafood and our oceans through play using the SASSI card game. The workshop expands on how the games synchronises with the school curriculum and demonstrates how the games can be played and used to learn about our oceans. The book is freely downloadable on our website and contains ideas for more than 15 games and activities for kids (Grades R to 10). Teachers, educators and parents are encouraged to download the book, cut out and laminate the brightly coloured fish cards for use in the classroom or at home.
