Sea Pact

Tabs group

Program Overview

Sea Pact is an alliance of nine of the leading, like-minded Seafood Distributors in North America. This unprecedented alliance is a first of its kind in the seafood industry. Sea Pact has a goal of making their seafood industry a more sustainable & eco-friendly one.

Sea Pact strives to advance environmentally sustainable fisheries and aquaculture practices and provide the building blocks for a long term and sustainable seafood industry. To accomplish this, Sea Pact has pledged to financially contribute to selected projects that are aligned with Sea Pact’s mission. The Sea Pact Advisory Committee will biannually select projects for funding.

We agree as Sea Pact to collectively: 

  1. Support a model of continuous improvement for fisheries and aquaculture farms. 

  2. Engage our peers and our supply chain in discussion and action around continuous improvement.

  3. Publically state our goals for reaching more responsible seafood supply and monitor and measure our progress towards our goal.

  4. Support each other’s efforts to educate our individual staff, customers and supply chain about our responsible seafood initiatives. 

  5. Utilize our collective purchasing power in a pre-competitive nature to engage in improvement efforts.

  6. Financially contribute to continuous improvement of those fisheries and fish farming systems we procure from that meet our Project Selection Criteria.

  7. Consider the impact on communities when making sourcing decisions.

  8. Engage in and support policy and management reform that leads to positive environmental outcomes in fisheries and aquaculture management.
