Produced since 1999, the Top 25 North American Seafood Suppliers list (originally published in SeaFood Business magazine) is, perennially, the most-read story produced by SeafoodSource. Containing suppliers, wholesalers and distributors - companies with vastly different business models - the list reveals the diversity and vibrancy of the seafood industry in North America.
Oysters are one of Monterey Bay Aquarium’s “Super Sustainable” seafood options. But all oysters are not created equal. Five different species, hundreds of different growing areas, can make an oyster menu as diverse as a wine list. World Champion Oyster Shucker, author and restauranteur, Patrick McMurray will take the attendees on a virtual oyster tour — through the species, and tastings of different regions of North America, and around the world.

A number of high-profile cases of mercury poisoning causing developmental disorders in the 1950s and 1960s dealt a body blow to the seafood industry, scaring parents into literally taking seafood out of the mouths of their children. The terror continues to this day, despite modern science showing the fears are unwarranted.
In this on-demand webinar, we'll hear the truth about how safe seafood is to eat, even for pregnant women and young children, and how you can get the message across to your customers.
Attendees will learn how consumer and healthcare provider surveys guided the development of www.seafoodhealthfacts.org, along with what the site has to offer. Attendees will also learn how the theme "Framing the Message" came about and what the new road map is for guiding consumers along the path of optimal seafood consumption.
More and more seafood operations on both the fisheries and farmed side are seeking sustainability and the credentials that go with it, intent on establishing their products as socially and environmentally responsible. This journey toward sustainability often leads to some familiar places, including to the doors of renowned certification bodies such as the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and the Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC). When it comes to sustainability certification, MSC and ASC have seen most everything – join Nicolas Guichoux, the global commercial director at MSC, Esther Luiten, the senior commercial manager for ASC, and SeafoodSource in a discussion of the modern trials and trends facing the seafood industry in the realms of sustainability and certification.
