Sea Pact, a nonprofit collaborative group of nine North American seafood companies, has announced a partnership with the Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions, in an effort to increase seafood sustainability.
The Conservation Alliance for Seafood Solutions works to connect conservation groups that work with businesses representing more than 80 percent of the North American grocery and institutional food service markets.
“Sea Pact brings great value to the alliance community through their industry experience, perspective and supply chain knowledge and engagement,” Conservation Alliance Executive Director Frazer McGilvray said. “We look forward to their unique viewpoint and working together to further the sustainable seafood movement.”
Sea Pact was founded in 2013 as a pre-competitive collaborative endeavor between Albion Fisheries, Fortune Fish & Gourmet, Ipswich Shellfish Group, Santa Monica Seafood, Seacore Seafood, Stavis Seafood, JJ McDonnell and A.C. Covert, and Seattle Fish Co.
“Sea Pact is very proud to join the Conservation Alliance community at this important juncture as we collectively determine the next key priority areas and methods to drive progress on solving seafood sustainability’s biggest challenges,” Sea Pact Managing Director Rob Johnson said. “We look forward to contribute our seafood supply chain expertise and pragmatic focus to the alliance’s increasing global and impactful collaborative work.”
