Choosing sustainable seafood

The movement towards sustainable seafood is about solutions for our oceans. Choosing sustainable seafood is a simple and effective action that you can take every time you eat at a restaurant or buy seafood. Whether you are an individual shopping for your family, a chef buying for your restaurant, or a supplier sourcing from fishing communities, your choices count. People as a whole sends a strong signal to government and industry leaders, telling them that you support responsible stewardship of our natural marine resources.

We understand that choosing sustainable seafood can be challenging, that’s why FreshCaught Seafood Exports has created easy-to-use products that help you identify the best seafood choices. This is the first time that information has been compiled for Canadians about our domestic fisheries and the seafood we import. Please take a look at Canada’s Seafood Guide.

The ultimate solutions will require all of US and Canada governments, industry, retailers and individuals-to take responsibility for changing our approach to seafood and fishing. We hope you will choose to be part of the solution.
