Understanding Sustainable Seafood

Well-managed wild-capture fisheries and environmentally responsible marine aquaculture play an increasingly important role in our food supply, our health, and the environment. Sustainable seafood is a continuous journey. We continually monitor our dynamic ocean resources to determine if overfishing is happening and respond quickly with appropriate measures. And environmental issues that once plagued newly emerging fish farms 40 years ago have evolved into some of the most environmentally efficient food production facilities in the world.
