Sustainability

Sustainable seafood is seafood that is either caught or farmed in ways that consider the long-term vitality of harvested species and the well-being of the oceans.
The Sustainable Seafood movement began in the 1990’s and highlights overfishing and environmentally destructive fishing methods. Through a number of initiatives, the movement has increased awareness and raised concerns over the way our fish are obtained. Whale Coast Seafoods we fully support Sustainable Seafood & Fishing Methods.
