FreshCatch works directly with small, local, family-owned fishing vessels and we reward our partner boats for caring for both their fish and the environment that they come from by giving them a higher price for their catch. Every fish is handled with care by no more than 3 people - our boats, ourselves, then our customers. We offer fish that is in season and work with Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program to ensure all of our catch is sustainable. We give back to our ocean by supporting non-profit organizations that work towards bettering the environment, we reuse all of our ice packs and offer minimal packaging at hub point and home deliveries (no boxing unless someone is not home and haven't left a cooler out for us to use). We work with other like-minded seafood companies to help support our vision that rising tides float all boats - meaning we believe can be successful working towards the same goals together rather than in competition with one another and we do this by always leading by example. We have a 100% transparent supply chain and we work hard to make our seafood available to people at every income level - we are especially proud to work with farmers markets that support EBT programs and underserved communities that don't have access to fresh, sustainable seafood. We are also starting to work with schools to help them improve their food programs to include more fresh, healthy, sustainable seafood!
