We pride ourselves on utilizing the newest technologies and processes to bring our customers the freshest and highest quality product. 

With over 80 years of experience sourcing responsibly harvested species, our team has been putting sustainability at the forefront of our business philosophy since the beginning. Those values of respect and appreciation for the sea brought over from the old world still influence our business decisions today. Our purchasing decisions are based on the guidance we receive from our resident marine biologist, government and non-governmental organizations, and the large network of suppliers and fisherman we have formed relationships with over the years.

In order to ensure that the fisheries and aquaculture we source are not overfished or leaving a large carbon footprint behind, we have set in place responsible standards for sourcing product.  We are constantly evaluating and updating new information as it becomes available from both Governmental and N.G.O. Sources.  This criterion is strictly followed by our purchasing department to insure that the consumer can not only feel good about what they are eating but also make an ecological difference by using these products.

  • Sources cannot be overfished.
  • The harvesting methods do not take part in the depletion of endangered or vulnerable species, damage the habitat, or generate waste (by catch).
  • Select mature fish to insure they have had the opportunity to reproduce.
  • Source local fish which will minimize the carbon footprint as less fuel will be used in catching and transporting the product.
  • Source from only well maintained and monitored fisheries .
  • Actively promote the full use of the fish carcass.
  • Monitor and have consistent dialogue with the fisheries that follow the criteria to insure all guidelines are constantly followed.
  • Use sustainably aqua cultured seafood to take the place and meet the continuing growth in consumer demand for depleted species.
  • No impact on critical habitat.
  • Water, energy and feed management must be in place
