We support small scale family fishermen using line-caught techniques. These fishermen catch a fraction of the fish that Alaskan fishermen catch. Our fishermen are under tight supervision and quotas to ensure fish stock sustainability. While we also follow the Monterey Bay Aquarium seafood watch program, local fisheries have their own intricacies and nuances, so we take it one step further and thoroughly investigate the sustainability of each species we will bring you, so YOU don’t have to. The day before each delivery we will tell you where the fish was caught, when it was caught, with what method and the sustainability profile of that particular species. That’s Transparency with a capital “T”!
About BestCatch Seattle
We get fish only from Washington fishermen who use sustainable methods. We then whisk the fresh catch into Seattle, usually a day after it was caught!
You can have this fish delivered to your neighborhood with our community supported fish-share: Bestcatch Seattle. It works just like a community supported farm - you and others in your neighborhood invest in a certain amount of “shares” and then you pick up your “dividend” or portion of fish each week from a centrally located pickup spot.
