Kanaloa Seafood has announced that they recently achieved their Marine Stewardship Council Certification, a globally renowned recognition in the sustainable seafood industry. The Marine Stewardship Council’s (MSC) science-based standard is the standard for environmentally sustainable wild-caught seafood. The MSC has developed standards both for sustainable fishing and seafood traceability. They meet the world’s best practice criteria and are helping to transform global seafood markets. Kanaloa’s detailed sustainability assessment included extensive review by science experts, peer review, and stakeholder consultation.
“Since we began our business over thirty years ago, we have felt a deep responsibility to promote and support environmentally responsible fisheries,” shared Randee and Don Disraeli, owners of Kanaloa Seafood. “We approached the business of fish with a rigorous scientific perspective, and understood early on that development, support, and promotion of sustainable, environmentally sound fishing practices are necessary to reverse the dangerous depletion of world fish stocks, and bring an end to destructive fishing practices. Clearly the stakes are huge, and when it comes the health of the oceans, we are all stakeholders.”
