Finding seafood with the best price and quality can be a challenge when keeping up with consumer demands—but more importantly, we want to find the most responsible sources, because sustainability is integral to our marine environment, communities, and the entire industry. This can be a particular challenge in the seafood industry, where we face the reality of illegal, unreported and unregulated harvest. Seafood fraud is also common, making it extremely important for companies and consumers to understand where their seafood comes from.
That is why we are certified through the MSC Chain of Custody Standard. This certification is administered by the Marine Stewardship Council, an international non-profit organization made up of environmental experts, which sets the standard for sustainable fishing through a variety of programs. We make every effort to supply products that are sustainable and traceable, and do our best to source from MSC fisheries whenever we can.

The Canadian lobster industry has one of the longest histories of regulation and Nova Scotia produces approximately 80% of all Canadian lobster sales! Fisherman’s Market is proud to call this beautiful, bountiful province home and we want to protect the pristine coastline as much as possible.
We are also a member of the Lobster Council of Canada, which keeps us in the loop on the national market and developing science. Additionally, we donate to the Fishermen and Scientists Research Society annually, which contributes to collaborative science between industry, researchers and the government.
