Sustainability

The BC Seafood Alliance is committed to the conservation and sustainable use of seafood resources in B.C. for the benefit of all British Columbians. Conservation and sustainable management must be first principles for all seafood businesses in B.C. Without water and habitat quality, and ecologically sustainable resource use practices, the industry simply cannot achieve its long-term goals.

Report on Progress Towards Environmental Sustainability

In 2001, with the support of the B.C. Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries and Fisheries and Oceans Canada, the B.C. Seafood Alliance commissioned a report on Progress Towards Environmental Sustainability in British Columbia's Seafood Sector. The report was prepared by Archipelago Marine Research.

The BC Seafood Alliance has updated the above information by releasing Sustainable Issue Sheets prepared by Archipelago Marine Research.  These fact sheets describe innovative approaches which improve the environmental performance of fishing activities in BC.  Please click on the links below to read each issue sheet.
