Catalina Offshore Products is among 11 restaurant and retail businesses that have partnered with Seafood for the Future, whose mission is to encourage healthy and responsible seafood choices. As a result, Catalina Offshore Products is part of a network of businesses committed to sourcing better seafood choices from responsible fisheries or farms.
As a primary supplier of West Coast fresh fish and shellfish, we mainly feature species found along the California coast and the Baja peninsula. Nearly 75 percent of the seafood we sell online, wholesale and in our San Diego-based retail market is sustainable and much of it is sushi grade fish.
As our CEO Dave Rudie noted in a recent press release, we appreciate that Seafood for the Future looks beyond generalizations in order to provide well-researched seafood recommendations. “For example we seek out individual sources that are doing things responsibly,” he said. “Where other seafood advisory lists categorize certain species as do-not-eat, we know that in our region those stocks are well-managed and incredibly robust.”
Our partner page on Seafood for the Future’s website features a partial list of recommended seafood products. The list will be updated as additional inventory is assessed. To maintain our partnership our product offerings will be evaluated quarterly to ensure the most up-to-date recommendations. Seafood for the Future also requires copies of our most recent invoices at the time of evaluation to improve transparency and accountability.
We’re looking forward to a long partnership with Seafood for the Future to ensure fresh, healthy and sustainable seafood choices!
