The health of the oceans is directly connected to the way people catch and farm seafood.

There are many stresses on the marine environment, but the primary factor in the oceans’ decline is consumers' demand for seafood. Many fisheries are in need of rebuilding and many have collapsed due to overfishing and poor management.

As a result, food webs are becoming less robust and marine habitats are increasingly threatened.

PCC partners with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch program to ensure that all the seafood we carry is from abundant, well-managed fisheries.
