Lund’s Fisheries is the only U.S. producer of all three squid fisheries available in domestic waters.

Lund’s Fisheries Now Offers MSC-Certified Loligo Squid to Domestic and Export Customers

  (UNITED STATES, 5/29/2018)

Lund’s Fisheries has announced that its Northeastern longfin (Loligo) squid fishery is the first squid fishery in the world to be certified as sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). Receiving MSC certification confirming that its fishing practices, both in the United States and at Lund’s, are the best in the world, creating healthy fisheries and marine environments.

“We are thrilled that the Loligo squid fishery has received MSC’s famous blue eco-label,” said Wayne Reichle, President of Lund’s Fisheries. “This certification tells the world that our fishery is operating sustainably, and is a strong example of our commitment to providing customers with responsibly sourced, high-quality products.”
With locations on both West & East coasts of the USA Lund's is able to offer customers a wide range of high quality land and sea frozen seafood produced by the company owned fishing vessels and the many independent vessels they deal with.

Lund’s Fisheries is the only U.S. producer of all three squid fisheries available in domestic waters: Atlantic Loligo, or Longfin squid (Doryteuthis pealeii), Atlantic Shortfin squid (Illex illecebrosus) – now being assessed for MSC certification later this year - and Pacific market squid (Doryteuthis opalescens). 

Now, more than ever, consumers want to know where and how their seafood is caught, that it is handled safely, and that it is being sustainably managed for the future. While the MSC blue eco-label has been in demand with its European customers for some time, the company's domestic partners are increasingly looking for it, and customers are more widely asking for the MSC brand. With this certification, Lund’s will continue to deliver on our promise to produce only “seafood as it should be.”

Lund’s has seventeen active fishing vessels that are part of its family.

MSC certification of Lund's Fisheries Loligo squid fishery:

  • Provides the healthiest seafood to consumers;
  • Promotes traceability, showing where and when the seafood is caught;
  • Promotes economic stability of fishing communities;
  • Provides assurances to the domestic and foreign customers that U.S.-produced East Coast Loligo is being managed to ensure its long-term availability.
Seafood lovers can enjoy a sustainable supply of seafood from local waters.

Third-party certification of the U.S. fisheries management system through organizations like MSC allows to communicate to the customers that the domestically produced seafood products are harvested sustainably year after year, while also protecting the valuable, and productive, marine ecosystem in the Northwest Atlantic Ocean. 

Next year, Lund’s Fisheries, with headquarters in Cape May, New Jersey, and operations on both coasts, will celebrate 65 years of “Managing the Needs of our Customers through our Commitment to Sustainable Fisheries.”

"Our family-owned enterprise has pioneered cooperative fisheries research and management in order to allow seafood lovers everywhere to enjoy a sustainable supply of seafood from local waters. We believe fisheries must be managed based on sound science and we work hard to protect the ocean’s resources for our customers today and for generations to come".

Lund’s Fisheries produces Atlantic Loligo, or Longfin squid, Atlantic Shortfin squid and Pacific market squid.
