Sustainable seafood is seafood that is either caught or farmed in ways that consider the long-term vitality of harvested species and the well-being of the oceans, as well as the livelihoods of fisheries-dependent communities.
Fisherman’s Market has long been a supporter of sustainable fishing within our Atlantic waters. We have quickly become strong supporter of the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and the evaluating of products without our community. We have been on the founding councils to evaluate species such as Swordfish, Halibut, Haddock and others. We have supported MSC through financial assistance to ensure that our local Atlantic Fisheries are evaluated and proven to the world as not just the best seafood , but sustainable as well. We have had out Chain of Custody for MSC for the past 6 years – which allows us to promote MSC and use all its traceability powers for us and our customers.
Over the past few years, we have been distributing and promoting more and more Oceanwise approved seafood products. We source products from around the world with the intentions to promote sustainable products for our customers.
