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. 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.
