ABOUT MICHAEL & MICHELLE
Michael and Michelle founded love.fish in 2010 with a passion to offer the provenance and quality of Australian seafood in a casual, affordable setting. The new love.fish now in Barangaroo, takes Sydney seafood dining to the next level. The love.fish brand had already forged a reputation as ‘the fish bar with a green heart’ for serving fresh, and sustainable seafood to hordes of adoring locals at the original love.fish restaurant in Rozelle. love.fish on The Streets of Barangaroo, which opened in 2016, offers the very same ‘green heart’ philosophy, with a wider selection of Australia’s best locally-sourced oysters, raw fish, whole fish, platters, and crustaceans – at a world-class waterfront location.
A BIG GREEN HEART
At love.fish we have always wanted do what we love doing with as little impact on our world as possible. As a family of two small children we have always been aware of how accountable we are for their future. As business owners we have a greater social responsibility to address our environmental footprint. We love our new home at Barangaroo. With its 6 star Green Star commitment to sustainabilty within the precinct, we have found a partner to share and grow our commitment.
PEOPLE WE TRUST
Whether it be our seafood, wine, spirits, coffee, packaging, or even our straws, we believe in sourcing and supporting local suppliers who share our business principles.
PLENTY MORE FISH IN THE SEA
The sustainable choice is to support Australian fisheries – we have the highest standards in the world! We select seafood that is not subject to over fishing and has been caught or farmed using methods that respect the environment.
At love.fish we list the provenance of all of our seafood, selecting only the highest quality fish sourced locally from Australian & New Zealand waters. We believe food miles play an important role in reducing our ecological footprint too.
WASTE NOT WANT NOT
The food industry is unfortunately associated with large amounts of waste both in the packaging of food products and in the amount of food that is discarded. love.fish has been lightening its waste footprint since 2010 but with the new resources of such a sustainable precinct our recycling and composting have reached new levels. The streaming of all waste and diversion from landfill is incredibly rewarding. Barangaroo even has it’s own waste water recycling system!
PACKAGING WITH A CONSCIENCE
As a restaurant providing takeaway we have been very mindful to choose environmentally responsible packaging. Most food containers can be recycled but often end up as landfill. Ensuring the majority of our packaging is biodegradable is integral to our waste management.
All take home boxes and cutlery are manufactured from 100% sustainable sources such as sugar cane and cornstarch. For our salad and sauce containers we have chosen PLA plant based plastic. This ensures all love.fish take home packaging is biodegradable or compostable within 12 weeks.
The love.fish goal is to help reduce landfill, protect natural resources and reduce greenhouse emissions.
