Sunset Dining and Sustainable Fishing Practices. The perfect match on Anna Maria Island

Published on October 10, 2018 by Dan's Florida Condos

Guests of Dans Florida Condos, not only visit Anna Maria Island FL for the world class beaches, relaxation, or the sun. . . they often come for healthy and tasty cuisine.  While fresh fish is available in pretty much every resturant and diner you turn, how do you know you are receiving the best quality catch of the day fish that the Island is famous for.

Guests of Dans Florida Condos have been dining at the Beach House for decades.  They not only have premier real estate with sunset views and elegant dinning, but they support sustainable fishing practices and have a long reputation of delivering fresh, quality meals night in and night out.

You are out for a night of relaxation and a nice dinner. You order your food and take in the aroma, texture, and taste of your seafood entree. Who knew supporting the health of the environment could be so enjoyable and simple?

At the Beach House, they wholeheartedly support sustainable fishing practices. That means your favorite seafood species has its best chance to be around for you and your children to enjoy in the future. When it comes to seafood, the term “sustainable” means that a species has been wild caught or farmed with both the long-term future of the fishery and the health of the oceans as top priorities.

Our oceans cover more than seventy percent of the Earth’s surface; however, some species of seafood have been so overfished that the fisheries are no longer able to support the demand. As an example, Tuna stocks have suffered overfishing to meet the increased demand, which is why you won’t see tuna on our menu unless it were to be sustainably caught. Another concern is that many species high on the marine food chain have suffered from overfishing and have a high amount of Mercury, PCB’s or other bio-containments. Conversely, many sustainable fish species such as Grey Striped mullet, Spanish mackerel and herring are high in protein, vitamins, minerals and heart-healthy omega-3s while containing low amounts of harmful chemicals. Sustainable fishing practices mean more abundant populations and healthier fish for everyone.

When you look at the Beach House menu and see Atlantic Cod, you know it has received numerous recommendations for being sustainable and good for you. They also use local fisheries for fish like Cortez Grey Striped mullet and other underutilized species that have met the recommendations for certified, sustainable fishing.

The news isn’t all bad as there is something that can be done. For instance, the Gulf Red Snapper fishery was driven to the brink of collapse by decades of overfishing. According to the Environmental Defense Fund, cooperation in the fishing industry has led to a noteworthy change in the amount of snapper available for harvesting. Since 2007 the amount of stock has tripled and now can be found on menus year round and is recognized as a sustainable choice for seafood.

Pink Shrimp, Black Sea Bass, and Yellowtail Snapper are just some of the species being rebuilt as part of local, private and governmental efforts to ensure environmentally responsible aquaculture. Good fishery management takes into account not just human consumption, but the impact of the species on its surrounding ecosystem. Sea turtles and coral reefs are all negatively affected when species are overfished and unavailable to fulfill their roles.

Eating sustainably doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice flavor or texture. Many lesser known species are absolutely delicious on their own and our culinary team is well versed on the best ways to enhance the flavors of each species, allowing us to bring diversity to our menus and support a healthy, sustainable environment.

Know that at the Beach House they take commitment to the health and sustainability of the ocean as seriously as their commitment to customers. It has always been their aim to be good stewards of the environment and to leave it better than we found it.

Greetings potential renter, and welcome to Dans Florida Condos listing page for my 1 and 2 bedroom unites. I own several units at this property since 1991 and have fully enjoyed the time I get to spend here. I purchased a second 1BR unit in 2014! My family and I stay in the units several times a year, which is why it's important to me to keep it updated and clean. We pride ourselves in having one of the cleanest and most functional units around, and our past guest reviews back this up! I have rented this unit out to dozens of singles, couples, families, and organizations throughout the years, many of which are repeat renters. I look forward to working with you, and sharing my treasured 'home away from home' with you.
