Sustainability and ocean stewardship are our top priorities. We know we’re doing everything we can to maintain a healthy fishery, and it means a lot to us that you trust us to provide healthy, sustainable fish for your table. But how do you really know we’re doing the right thing?
The Alaska salmon fishery just achieved RFM certification for the third time!
Super, right? But what does that mean to you?
It’s easy for those of us in the fish world to sling around industry jargon while forgetting that the rest of the world, especially our customers, would really appreciate plain English.
RFM stands for Responsible Fishery Management, and RFM certification means that our fishery has been thoroughly vetted and met all the criteria set forth in the 125+ clauses in the RFM fisheries standard. These standards cover all five species of salmon commercially harvested in Alaska and address everything from stock evaluations to ecological impacts from fishing.
The report is long, but you can read it here if you want!
Alaskan Salmon have been sustainably managed for over 60 years, so this recertification comes as no surprise to us, but it does provide proof that we’re doing the right things for the fish, the ecosystem, and ultimately our customers.
We hope this certification, and getting your fish from us gives you the same peace of mind we’ve been enjoying for generations!
