Responsible seafood sourcing includes eliminating bycatch of endangered, threatened, and protected species.
Sustainability has traditionally focused exclusively on harvest rates, but it sustainability must also consider impacts to wildlife. Unintended catch (bycatch) of non-target species adversely affects sustainability, as does other types of environmental degradation. We believe for a fishery to be sustainable; it must work in a way that promotes a healthy ecosystem.
The Bycatch Solutions Hub is an actionable tool designed for the seafood industry to address bycatch impacts within their supply chain. At the Bycatch Solutions Hub we work with the seafood industry to identify problems, promote solutions, and highlight real success stories that protect our ocean wildlife.
