Meat & Seafood: OUR SEAFOOD SUSTAINABILITY ICONS

OUR SEAFOOD SUSTAINABILITY ICONS

We want everyone to enjoy a variety of sustainable seafood for years to come. That’s why we’ve forged alliances with Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) and Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative (GSSI). What does that mean for you? We’re making it easy for you to find our sustainable seafood. Look for the responsibly or sustainably sourced icons when you purchase seafood in our stores to help us do good.

Sustainably Sourced

  • Wild-caught: Fish stockers are certified by a third-party certification program that’s recognized by the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative, or fish stocks that SFP considers healthy and well-managed.
  • Farm-raised: All four levels of the supply chain (farm, hatchery, plant, and feed) are certified by a third-party certification program that’s recognized by the GSSI. Shellfish must be certified at all three levels of the supply chain (farm, hatchery, and plant).

Responsibly Sourced

  • Wild-caught: Fish stocks are considered healthy and well-managed by the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership or in a credible, graded fishery improvement project (FIP).
  • Farm-raised: The farm level of the supply chain is certified by a third-party certification program that’s recognized by the Global Sustainable Seafood Initiative. It may also be certified at the hatchery, plant, and/or feed levels.

GreenWise Sustainably Sourced

  • Wild-caught: Meets all the sustainably sourced criteria above. Additionally, contains no bisulfates, phosphates, nonphosphates, or other processing aids.
  • Farm-raised: Meets all the sustainably sourced criteria above. Additionally, is raised without antibiotics or hormones, and contains no bisulfates, phosphates, nonphosphates, or other processing aids.

Wondering about the seafood that’s not marked either responsibly or sustainably sourced? If it hasn’t been evaluated by the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership or GSSI ecolabels, all seafood must still meet our high Publix standards.
