Gulf of Maine Responsibly Harvested seafood products can now be found in hundreds of stores throughout the Northeast as well as outside the region. In the last six months, Shaw's, Giant Eagle, and Big Y have joined Hannaford in carrying these branded seafood products. Several partners have signed on as licensed dealers, including Bristol Seafood, North Atlantic Seafood, North Coast Seafoods, Sanders Lobster Company, Slade Gorton, and Sousa Seafood. The program supports the long-term health of the Gulf of Maine's fisheries and fishing communities. Verified products currently include Atlantic pollock, sea scallops, northern shrimp, cod, haddock, whiting, and lobster with more soon to come.
We've heard great reviews from seafood shoppers:
"We were in New Bedford last week, and I saw some Gulf of Maine Responsibly Harvested scallops at Shaw's. I spoke to the seafood manager saying how much I appreciated it."
"It makes great sense for all of us that live here both economically and environmentally. Personally it's a huge incentive for me."
"I'll check it out next time I'm in a grocery store!"
