We look forward to sharing and working with EDF on sustainable seafood issues and stay tuned for future opportunities for your business or organization to get involved.
U.S. West Coast Groundfish Manual
In collaboration with Environmental Defense Fund, FishChoice co-produced the U.S. West Coast Groundfish Manual to help raise awareness for seafood that is currently being undervalued and underfished. The manual highlights 13 species of flatfish, rockfish, lingcod, and longnose skate. Each species has two pages of information that includes physical description, sourcing tips, selling tips, culinary characteristics, conservation notes, and total landings broken down by sustainability. These fish provide the opportunity to make great products, tell a great story, and reward fishermen who are fishing responsibly. FishChoice will also be continuing to add suppliers of these products to help make sourcing these fish easier to identify.
