Eating seafood can be complicated.
What can we do about it?
The commercial seafood supply chain is complex and often produces unreliable information. Because we’re in business to save our home planet, we convened a panel of leading scientists and fish-conservation groups to help us responsibly source our seafood. One result of this collaboration is our own ultra-stringent Seafood Sourcing Criteria that guides our decisions. The basic philosophy is a place-based framework that accounts for specific harvest locations and localized needs of the ecosystem. Learn more about our sourcing process with our Wild Salmon

There's a story behind everything we consume. Read more about our seafood from conservationists, chefs,
fishermen, biologists and writers who are committed to conservation and eating responsibly.
Protect Wild Fish
Hatcheries and open-water fish farms are driving wild fish to extinction around the world. Tell decision makers to stop wasting money on failed plans to invest in science-based solutions to save endangered salmon and orcas: Stop hatcheries, reduce harvest and remove dams

The Meaning of Salmon
The wild salmon of the Pacific Northwest represent place, nourishment, community, and profound lessons
The Meaning of Mussels
Mussels can breathe life back into the oceans—while feeding us, too.
Know where your seafood comes from.
Ask questions, be informed and eat smart.
Buy wild salmon from well-managed, selectively-harvested fisheries. For example,
sockeye salmon from near-shore, set-net fisheries in Alaska and reef-net-caught
pink salmon from Lummi Island, Washington.
Don't buy Atlantic salmon or steelhead.For the most part, these species are either farmed in
net-pens or harvested from endangered populations.
Eat bait + bivalves. Go lower on the food chain with smaller fish, including mackerel and
sardines, from well-managed, place-based fisheries. Mussels, oysters and clams improve
water quality and provide habitat for other aquatic life where they are cultivated.
Don't eat open-ocean, apex predator fish. Swordfish, bluefin tuna, Chilean seabass and other
large fish at the top of the food chain are vulnerable to overfishing and can accumulate high levels of
Our friends at Wild Fish Conservancy of Duvall, Washington do
the hard work—scientific, legal, political—required to protect our wild salmon. We’re proud to support their
efforts, and to partner with them in creating our ultra-stringent Wild Salmon Sourcing Criteria. Thanks to
WFC and other fish conservation groups, when you enjoy our Wild Pink and Wild Sockeye Salmon, you’re
supporting truly sustainable fisheries, and the future of wild salmon.
