At Great-Alaska-Seafood.com we make every effort to only sell wild fish and wild seafood products harvested in a sustainable manner. As pressure mounts on global fisheries, it is in consumer's best interest to be aware of the state of sustainability of the seafood products they purchase.
We strive to ensure that the seafood products we deliver to households across the U.S are certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). The MSC has established fisheries guidelines for their eco-label that are consistent with those that have been put in place by the United Nations.
The MSC is an International non-profit organization that was set up in 1997 to develop solutions to overfishing. Today the MSC runs and is recognized as the only environmental certification and eco-labeling program for internationally harvested wild fisheries.
As a result our customers can be assured that most, if not all, of the seafood offerings we sell are products of fisheries that are certified sustainable, either by the State of Alaska and/or the MSC.
