Canada's Business Guide to Sustainable Seafood cover

Download PDF

The SeaChoice Business Guide is a tool designed to introduce companies that buy and sell seafood to ways they can support sustainable seafood. The guide is intended to explain our view on some of the most relevant elements of a sustainable seafood strategy: making a commitment, collecting data, sustainable procurement, transparency, education, and reform.

It also outlines a range of specific activities that can help support best practices. The case studies illustrate how some businesses are already acting on their commitment to seafood sustainability.

We recognize that achieving environmental sustainability is a journey involving many steps and that there are different paths to reach the end goals. We offer this guide as a starting point for dialogue and future collaboration with companies that share our interest in supporting the long-term viability of our seafood supply and the health of ocean cosystems.

This document is a "first of its kind" resource for Canadian seafood buyers.
