Sea Pact will improve the sustainability of global seafood by using the collective power of like-minded North American seafood companies to improve the fishing and fish farming systems we procure from. Sea Pact was created by the six founding members: Albion Fisheries, Fortune Fish & Gourmet, Ipswich Shellfish Group, Santa Monica Seafood, Seacore Seafood and Seattle Fish Co. Sea Pact now consists of nine members.
We agree as Sea Pact to collectively:
1.Support a model of continuous improvement for fisheries and aquaculture farms.
2.Engage our peers and our supply chain in discussion and action around continuous improvement.
3.Publically state our goals for reaching more responsible seafood supply and monitor and measure our progress towards our goal.
4.Support each other’s efforts to educate our individual staff, customers and supply chain about our responsible seafood initiatives.
5.Utilize our collective purchasing power in a pre-competitive nature to engage in improvement efforts.
6. Financially contribute to continuous improvement of those fisheries and fish farming systems we procure from that meet our Project Selection Criteria.
7.Consider the impact on communities when making sourcing decisions.
8.Engage in and support policy and management reform that leads to positive environmental outcomes in fisheries and aquaculture management.
