Friend Sea Certification
Friend of the Sea is a certification program that shows that you are a fishery or that you source from a fishery that partakes in sustainable fishing practices. Overfishing is a global problem as the number of people that consume seafood is outpacing the supply available. As a result, fish stocks are quickly being depleted.
– The fish are coming from a stock that’s not at risk or not being over-exploited.
– The fishing practices are not damaging the seabed which is common with certain trawling methods.
– The fishery is compliant with local quotas and follow rules in terms of what kinds of tools can and cannot be used.
– The fisheries do not pollute the areas where they are fishing.
