Pacific Seafood offers 34 MSC certified species.

Pacific Seafood Releases Second Annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report

  (UNITED STATES, 3/8/2019)

Pacific Seafood has published its second annual Corporate Social Responsibility Report detailing efforts to be socially responsible in all areas of business from coastal communities and team members, to sustainable fishing practices and traceability, to food safety standards, and the environment.

Highlights of the report include:

Sustainability

  • Became the first and ONLY company to offer Best Aquaculture Practices Four-Star certified oysters, the most sustainable in the world
  • 20 Marine Stewardship Council certified facilities
  • Offering 34 Marine Stewardship Council certified species and counting
  • Best Aquaculture Practices certified steelhead farm
  • Require use of turtle excluder devices by any vessels that harvest for Pacific Seafood
Pacific Seafood's unique supply chain capabilities allow to leverage its expertise in every aspect of the business including harvesting/fishing, processing, distribution, and aquaculture in order to provide its customers with the freshest, most sustainable, highest-quality product on the market. 

Food Safety

  • Proprietary traceability technology allows the company to track any product it processes from the body of water it was harvested in, all the way through the supply chain to the store or restaurant that sold it
  • Each year at least 10 new team members become HACCP certified
  • 50 quality assurance team members entirely dedicated to quality and food safety
  • More than 100 swabs per week ensure their processing facilities are pathogen-free
Pacific Seafood became the first and only company to offer Best Aquaculture Practices Four-Star certified oysters.

Environment

  • By processing nearly 100% of their fish waste into fish by-products, they prevent 80 million pounds of fish waste from entering U.S. landfills
  • Reduced packaging waste by 100 tons
  • Styrofoam recycling program processed more than 100,000 pounds in 2018
The groundfish fishery has been identified as the poster child of good fishery management practices.

Support for our People and Communities

  • New Warrenton facility provided more than 100 full-time and 100 seasonal jobs, and the new dock is predicted to bring in $220,000 in annual landing fees
  • Donated to more than 125 nonprofit organizations that serve the communities where they do business

The company also announced new sustainability-related projects for 2019 including work to have U.S. gulf shrimp and California pink shrimp fisheries MSC certified, and bring a new species of rainbow trout to the market that eats a plant-based diet resulting in a heartier and disease resistant fish.

Frank Dulcich.

“When Pacific Seafood was founded more than 75 years ago, it was my family’s goal to deliver the freshest seafood on the planet to our customers every day. Today our commitment to that goal remains unchanged and stronger than ever," said Frank Dulcich, President and CEO, Pacific Seafood.

"Protecting the longevity of our oceans and the important ecological balance within them is critical so that we can continue to provide delicious seafood for generations to come,” Dulcich added.

In addition, Pacific Seafood released a video capturing their efforts along with industry and government partners to revitalize the West Coast Groundfish fishery which for 20 years was on the brink of collapse and today is MSC certified.
