Proactive Environmental Leadership
Our active memberships in the industry's major trade associations include the National Fisheries Institute (NFI) & Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA). To promote responsible industry stewardship, we partner with suppliers that implement and maintain BAP standards as well as other globally accepted sustainable standards
Eastern Fish founder Bill Bloom as well as current CEO/President Eric Bloom have both served as Chairman of the NFI. Lee Bloom, Eastern Fish COO/Senior Vice president currently serves as the secretary of the GAA.
We strongly support the ongoing efforts of the Better Seafood Bureau, which works with the FDA. While the FDA's primary mission is product safety, the Better Seafood Bureau works to further establish economic integrity within the seafood industry, addressing such issues as short weights and counts and maintaining accurate country of origin information. Eastern Fish is Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) compliant. Our mission is to focus on food safety.
Habitat protection represents another facet of Eastern's environmental leadership. We are proud to support the Ocean Trust in its efforts involving the Rancho Nuevo Sea Turtle Restoration Project. This project is working to help preserve and restore the Gulf of Mexico's oceanic and beach environment of the Kemp's Ridley Sea Turtle, the world's most endangered sea turtle. Eastern Fish is Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) compliant and our mission is to focus on food safety..
At Eastern, our pledge to protecting the undersea environment goes beyond simply obeying all of the environmental laws and regulations.
