Environmental Leadership

Proactive Environmental Leadership


Our active memberships in the industry’s major trade associations include the National Fisheries Institute (NFI) and 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. We also have our MSC chain of custody to maintain the integrity of the supply chain.

Eastern Fish founder Bill Bloom and current COO/President Eric Bloom have each served as Chairman of the NFI. Lee Bloom, Eastern Fish VP of Purchasing, currently serves as Secretary of the GAA.

We are also on the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) Mexican Seafood Supply Chain Roundtable. Over the past decade, SFP has been deeply involved in several fishery improvement projects in Mexico, some of which involve fisheries that intend to pursue Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification. These fisheries, and a few others that have already been certified, have implemented voluntary measures to meet certification standards (e.g., improved landings data collection, compliance monitoring).

 

Furthermore, we are committed to habitat protection as part of our obligation to environmental leadership. At Eastern Fish, our pledge to protecting the undersea environment goes beyond simply obeying all of the environmental laws and regulations. 

Let us earn your trust.
