View Full Version : Sustainable Seafood Info

07-05-2012, 04:15 PM
Hello all,

I'm trying to do some research on sustainable seafood but I'm finding that its difficult to wade through a lot of B.S. to get to the real guidelines and useful information. Has anyone done any research on this topic and if so do you have any books/websites to recommend?

Thus far I've found the only useful info on websites of Monterrey Bay Aquarium and Greenpeace.

I'm waiting on a buddy to send me some info so I can pass it on to you. I do some commercial spearfishing out of the Tampa Bay area and it really is a great way to produce a great product that's sustainable. Fresh grouper, hogfish, and snapper all collected with no by-catch due to using experienced shooters who can pick and choose the legal and quality fish. The fish are managed by seasons and quota.

I will pass the info on once I have it and feel free to contact me or my friend who runs it. The fish are tagged with a tracking number and will have a brief history to them as to when/where they were caught. The tag will also allow you to track your fish straight to your restaurant.

Steelcity, that sounds awesome. Let me know when you have the info on it. Is there a website? I haven't heard too much in the way of spearfishing. How efficient/cost effective is the practice? Looking forward to reading about it!

Sorry for not getting back to you guys. I was traveling from Tampa to North Dakota yesterday. I'm up here for two week for work. Here is a link to give you guys some more info (http://mygulfwild.com/). My buddy is still putting his personal site together but this is the program that he's involved in. I believe he's already shipping to restaurants in Atlanta and possibly Denver. Take a look over the program and let me know what you think.

Forgot to mention that my buddy's contact number can be found under the "Order Now" tab for those of you who'd like some more information on a quality product.
