Beaver Street Fisheries has always been a leader in the seafood industry, and we understand that we have a global responsibility to support and sustain the earth and its ecosystem. As part of our committment to sustainability and responsible sourcing, we work closely with our supply chain partners to embrace strategies to support the ever-growing need for responsible seafood from around the world.
We do this by working with standard-setting organizations for aquaculture seafood, like the Global Aquaculture Alliance, whose practices are recognized internationally as a means for ensuring the aquaculture industry is meeting the growing demand for seafood using Best Aquaculture Practices. We also work with our partners and the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) on several projects to accomplish certification of our wild caught seafood supply chain, and are in the final stages of achieving MSC certification with our lobster fishery in the Bahamas.
Additionally, we have partnered with Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) to help us develop and implement fishery improvement projects for both wild and farm raised species. The improvement projects are designed to bring common stakeholders together to establish goals and collaboratively improve the environmental and social quality of the seafood production in a particular area using best practices.
Currently, we are engaged in several supplier roundtable projects with SFP such as Snapper and Grouper, Asia-Pacific Squid, Eastern Pacific Large Pelagic (Mahi-Mahi), and a Zonal Management Project for Shrimp in the Surat Thani region of Thailand. Our goal for all these projects is to accomplish a successful fishery improvement project, and to achieve a recognized certification for stustainability.
