Partner Profile: Bristol Seafood
Ray Swenton of Bristol Seafood has been collaborating with the Gulf of Maine Research Institute for more than six years. He serves on our Sustainable Seafood Advisory Council as well as our Science and Community Committee. As President of a global seafood company, he has a unique perspective and a strong sense of the importance of sustainable fisheries. Bristol supplies fresh Gulf of Maine scallops, haddock, cod, flounder, halibut, tuna, clams, and mussels. The company will be among the first to use the Gulf of Maine Responsibly Harvested seal on products.
"Well-managed fisheries can last forever. If we maintain them responsibly, we’ll be able to harvest seafood for our generation without compromising opportunities for future generations. The seal will make quality Gulf of Maine products stand out among the options. And the fact that GMRI is behind it makes the program credible.”
