Sustainable Seafood

Buying seafood can be a little tricky—there are so many varieties and so many factors! Which is better, farmed or wild-caught? What about protecting the dolphins? And trawling? And sushi! What’s safe to eat?

Worry not, dear reader. Honest Weight uses Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch® list as a guide for our seafood buying policies. Their frequently-updated chart divides seafood into three categories, showing which varieties are fished or farmed in ways that support a healthy ocean--and which types aren’t. Anything on the Seafood Watch® “Avoid” list is automatically placed on Honest Weight’s Banned List. That includes any seafood that is overfished or caught or farmed in ways that harm other marine life or the environment. Genetically-modified farmed fish is also Banned from Honest Weight.

We’re committed to providing only the healthiest, freshest fish and knowing where it comes from. Our Meat & Seafood team seeks out the most humanely raised, minimally processed fish and promote products in the Seafood Watch® Best Choices category. These types of seafood are well managed and caught or farmed in ways that cause little harm to habitats or other wildlife. So you can enjoy the taste and health benefits of eating seafood, without any of those worries we talked about swimming around your head.
