Fortune Fish & Gourmet is a proud founding member of Sea Pact, an alliance formed between six of the leading, like-minded Seafood Distributors in North America. This unprecedented alliance is a first of its kind in the seafood industry. Sea Pact has a goal of making their seafood industry a more sustainable & eco-friendly one. Fortune joined North American seafood suppliers; Albion Fisheries, Ipswich Shellfish Group, Santa Monica Seafood, Seacore Seafood and Seattle Fish Co. to form Sea Pact. These seven seafood industry leaders strive to advance environmentally sustainable fisheries and aquaculture practices and provide the building blocks of a long term, sustainable seafood industry by financially contributing to improve the systems from which they procure.
The seafood industry can be a powerful force for improving the environmental sustainability of seafood and ocean ecosystems, particularly when efforts are coordinated to best leverage buying power for positive change. Through pooling resources and knowledge to promote fisheries and aquaculture improvements, Sea Pact is able to sponsor improvement projects that may otherwise be too large in scope to support as individual companies.
The founding members of Sea Pact are six like-minded companies from the U.S. and Canada with progressive sustainability commitments. Sea Pact receives fiscal sponsorship from nonprofit New Venture Fund and sustainability counsel from non-profit organizations FishWise and Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP).
