Responsibly Harvested Promise

Even the most conscientious seafood shopper can get overwhelmed at the seafood counter. Where was the fish harvested? Are the fishermen acting responsibly? What can you feel good about buying?

In 2011, we created the Gulf of Maine Responsibly Harvested® brand to empower consumers to buy seafood they can feel good about. When you see this label at the grocery store or in your dining hall, it’s a promise that:

  • The product hails from the clean, productive waters of the Gulf of Maine region, spanning from Nova Scotia to Cape Cod.
  • The fishery is managed in a way that contributes to the long-term health of the resource.
  • Suppliers of Gulf of Maine Responsibly Harvested product commit to continuously improving the sustainability of the seafood industry.
