Our Wholesale Seafood Sustainability Practices

When you've been intrenched in the seafood business for five generations, sustainability becomes much more than a word or an abstract concept. All of us here at Boston Sword & Tuna depend on a prosperous ocean for not only our craft, but for a healthy ecosystem. Because of this, our team has committed to working in fisheries that are extremely well managed to ensure their commercial viability for generations to come.

Boston Sword & Tuna is also one of the founding members of the Sustainable Seafood LLC, which in August of 2012 applied for sustainable certification of the U.S. North Atlantic longline swordfish fishery by the Marine Stewardship Council. The MSC certification is widely considered to the gold standard for sustainable seafood certification.

Good Alternatives
