Sustainable Seafood

Open net-cage farmed salmon is not a sustainable choice for the health of wild salmon or our oceans. The good news is there is seafood available that is good to eat and better for the environment.

Chefs, restaurants, supermarkets and consumers are increasingly paying attention to the environmental concerns related to seafood, and they are willing to vote with their wallet by supporting the best practices. Below are some sustainable seafood resources to help you make the right decisions about the seafood you eat.
