New England Sustainable Seafood Facts

New England Fish Stocks Are Growing New England fish stocks are NOT dwindling. They are growing! New England fish stocks are protected under stringent fishery management measures including limited fishing days, limited access to fishing grounds, marine sanctuaries, individual species quotas. Our bountiful eco-system is protected through gear modification to minimize the impact on the environment. The New England fleet has the largest mesh size in the world to protect juvenile fish. Scallopers put bumpers on their dredges to help minimize contact with the ocean floor. Boats use separator trawls to attract the more abundant species while leaving the growing fish in the water and minimizing needless discards. The good news is that these measures are working and the biomass in our waters is growing!

Why Trust Foley Fish? Foley Fish takes fishery management very seriously participating on both the National Marine Fisheries Northeast Groundfish Advisory Panel and the Highly Migratory Species Panel. Foley Fish purchases fish 100% in compliance with fishery management regulations. Foley Fish is an all natural processor.
