A large food festival highlighting dishes made with sustainably-sourced seafoods will take place in Long Island City this weekend.

Aquarius, the name of the “artic-chic” festival, will be held inside the Foundry event space at 42-38 9th St. from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m. on Jan. 26, and marks the second annual festival for the co-founders—a cohort of event organizers.

The festival aims to promote environmentally-friendly practices toward catching or farming seafood, and is part of the sustainable seafood movement that started in the 1990s with awareness campaigns on overfishing, the destruction of marine ecosystems, and the importance of preserving marine biodiversity.
