Alaska: Still Abundant and Still Sustainable
2021-04-09

There has been much discussion about a Netflix production, Seaspiracy, a cleverly named movie that claims fish are being over-harvested everywhere and that the world will run out of fish in thirty years. Yet, scientists and researchers have universally debunked what has generally been characterized as a hit piece by agenda-driven vegan activists. There is widespread scientific data showing that levels of fish are increasing - overall and in most places.

We stand with the experts and our only agenda is to provide our customers with high quality seafood, harvested in a sustainable manner. While there may be areas of the world where fish are unscrupulously harvested, they are more the exception than the rule and Alaska is definitely not one of those places. It’s an actively managed, sustainable fishery and that's a fact.
