Seafood Sustainability: Joey’s Fish Shack’s Commitment to Ocean Conservation

At Joey’s Fish Shack, our love for seafood is deeply intertwined with our commitment to preserving the oceans for future generations. Through our Ocean Sustainability Project, we’re dedicated to supporting fisheries that prioritize sustainability and responsible practices. Let’s delve into how we’re making waves in ocean conservation and serving up delicious seafood with a conscience.

The Ocean Sustainability Project: Protecting Our Seas, One Bite at a Time

Our passion for ocean sustainability drives everything we do at Joey’s Fish Shack. That’s why we’ve partnered with the world’s leading authority on ocean sustainability to guide our sourcing practices. By following their recommendations, we ensure that the seafood we serve is harvested in a way that promotes the long-term health and vitality of marine ecosystems.

Sourcing Only the Best: Alaska Fishery Sustainability

Quality and sustainability go hand in hand at Joey’s Fish Shack. A significant portion of our seafood comes from the pristine waters of Alaska, renowned for its well-managed fisheries and commitment to sustainable practices. With a focus on minimizing bycatch and protecting delicate marine environments like coral reefs, we’re proud to offer seafood that’s as eco-friendly as it is delicious.

Progress Towards 100% Sustainability

While we’ve made significant strides in our sustainability journey, we’re continuously striving for improvement. Currently, 70% of the seafood we serve meets the rigorous standards set by the Ocean Sustainability Project. We’re actively working to reach 100% sustainability for our entire seafood supply chain, ensuring that every dish we serve supports the health of our oceans.

Navigating the Challenges: Addressing the Remaining 30%

We understand that achieving full sustainability can be complex, with some species facing certification challenges or limited availability. However, we’re committed to overcoming these obstacles and are actively exploring alternatives that meet the Ocean Sustainability Project’s standards. Keep an eye out for our specials, featuring new sustainability-approved choices as we work towards our goal.

Learn, Advocate, Act: Resources for Sustainable Seafood

At Joey’s Fish Shack, we believe in empowering our customers to make informed choices about seafood sustainability.
