Mind Fish Co. has partnered with the Marine Stewardship Council(MSC) to bring certified sustainable fish products to the market. Mind Fish Co. will distribute products that adhere to the principles and criteria for Sustainable Fishing set forth by the MSC:
- A fishery must be conducted in a sustainable manner that ensures the fishing activity can continue indefinitely. This means that fish populations remain healthy and productive. Where necessary, MSC certified fishery reduce their rate of fishing to allow stocks to recover.
- Fishing operations should minimize impacts of the marine environment, maintain the structure, productivity, function and diversity of the entire ecosystem (including habitat and non-target species).
- The fishery is well-managed and able to respond to changing circumstances. It also complies with all local, national, and international laws and standards.
We’re proud to collaborate with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch® program to support healthy oceans. We indicate which seafood we sell is fished or farmed in ways that minimize their environmental impact. Learn more at seafoodwatch.org
Seafood Watch empowers consumers and businesses to make choices for healthy oceans. Using science-based, peer reviewed methods, Seafood Watch assesses how wild-caught and farmed seafood affect the environment and provides recommendations indicating which items are “Best Choices,” “Good Alternatives,” and which ones to “Avoid.” As a Seafood Watch business partner, we pledge to serve only seafood rated a “Best Choice” or “Good Alternative” and to educate you – our customers – and suppliers about sustainability issues.
Mind Fish Co. is a proud partner of Ocean Wise. Overfishing is the biggest threat our oceans face today. The Ocean Wise symbol next to a seafood item is the Vancouver Aquarium’s assurance of an ocean-friendly seafood choice.
