Maine Institute: College Students Should Know Seafood Source

Feb 16, 2015

Portland Press Herald: The Gulf of Maine Research Institute wants schools to use its labels that show local, sustainable harvests. 

Portland-based GMRI is targeting colleges and universities to carry its label that promises seafood products are harvested locally and sustainably.

The institute offers a “responsibly harvested” label to food vendors that can source products back to the Gulf of Maine. Supermarkets, including regional giants Shaw’s and Hannaford, have so far been the primary vendors to carry the stamp, which launched in 2011.
