Sustainable Seafood Requirements

 

ChelseaMarket.ca is fully committed to carrying fish that are fully “sustainable” and responsibly caught or raised.

 

The word “sustainability” gets tossed around a lot these days, but is actually has a very specific definition. The World Commission on Environment and Development defines it as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”In short, sustainability refers to any process which can be carried out continuously without depleting resources.

Our marine environments might seem like gifts that keep on giving—but they must be managed effectively to be sustainable. At present, 90% of commercial fish stocks are either over harvested or fully harvested. So while we want to add more fish to our meals, we have to be mindful that our seafood comes from reputable companies with responsible practices.  Getting seafood from sustainable fish farms is great way to take pressure off wild fisheries.

 

We understand that your seafood choices are part of the solution. We know how much there is to think about when making healthy food selections for your family which is why we work with only the most reputable and ethical suppler partners to help us to provide you with sustainable seafood choices.  You can feel confident about your seafood selections at ChelseaMarket.ca.
