Fukasaku to return to Vancouver Aquarium's Chowder competition for 2015

The popular seafood chowder that Prince Rupert residents have come to know and enjoy is about to make a road trip once again, with word that for the second year in a row, Prince Rupert chef Dai Fukasaku will be taking his North Pacific creation to Vancouver.

Much like it was last year, the North Coast culinary classic will be up against some strong Vancouver competition as well as from other communities along Vancouver island.

The event (which is for those 19 years of age and above) takes place at the Vancouver Aquarium on November 18th, should you be in the Vancouver area and want to take in the event, tickets are on sale now and coast 60 dollars plus GST.

Proceeds going towards Ocean Wise, a Vancouver aquarium conservation program that is designed to educate consumers about the issues surrounding sustainable seafood.
