as rated by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch
Through our partnership with the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Haggen offers only sustainable fresh seafood. This means you’ll only find seafood that meets Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch certifications of “Best Choice” or “Good Alternative” in our Seafood Department. Sustainably sourced seafood protects the future availability of seafood as well as the livelihood of fishing communities. You can also feel good about choosing seafood that preserves a balanced ocean environment, which will yield a healthy seafood supply in the future.
What makes seafood sustainable?
To be sustainable, our suppliers provide wild or farmed seafood that can maintain or increase production without jeopardizing the structure and function of existing ecosystems. Seafood Watch monitors the method and location where seafood is caught or harvested and the type of seafood in order to certify sustainability.
Understanding sustainable labels
Green “Best Choice” labeled seafood poses little to no impact on the environment, future populations and other species. Yellow “Good Alternative” labeled seafood indicates one or more known issues with the fishery yet an improvement plan is in place and this seafood is still a sustainable choice.
Fresh from our Ocean
