Producing or Harvesting Ocean Wise Seafood
Sustainable seafood begins with the producers and harvesters who choose to follow best practices that can help restore fish stocks. Many of these practices came from coastal communities, who have stewarded and cared for these waters for thousands of years. Adopting practices that foster a sustainable and healthy ecosystem will ensure abundance of seafood for generations to come.
