Traceable…to a known and trusted source
Sustainable…only sourced from trusted suppliers who follow industry best practices
Responsible…by following Total Allowable Catch (TAC) and other regulatory efforts that manage fish populations, such as fishing quotas, and avoiding serving at-risk species
Traceable. Sustainable. Responsible. That’s been Red Lobster's game plan for the past 50 years.

For 50 years, it’s been Red Lobster´s commitment to serve Seafood with Standards.

To do that, we need to make sure we're sourcing in a way that ensures there's high quality seafood available to enjoy for generations to come," said Kim Lopdrup, CEO, Red Lobster. "Responsible sourcing has been a priority for us since the very beginning, and we're proud to now share this information with our guests so they can feel good about dining with us."
