Our collective experience filming and working In the commercial fishing industry exposed us to some of the serious issues facing the seafood supply chain. In 2014, we saw an opportunity to make a positive change. We began an immersive two-year study to learn how we could provide better seafood and help eliminate detrimental fishing and farming practices, misinformation and fraud. After traveling the world, working with responsible fishermen, aquaculturists, scientists and award-winning chefs, we focused our efforts and created a new service to connect sustainable seafood to the fastest growing sector of the restaurant industry: healthy fast casual brands. Since 2016 Wild Fish Direct has partnered with some of the biggest and most innovative brands in the business, serving customers nationwide with our healthy popular species, under-appreciated offerings and sea greens.
At Wild FIsh Direct, we assess the sustainability of our offerings based on the ratings of Seafood Watch, The Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), NOAA FishWatch and the latest stock assessments as well as aquaculture certifications including Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC), Global G.A.P. and Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP). We also utilize scientific research and lab testing in certain cases to ensure the Integrity of our products. In addition, Wild Fish Direct is proud to promote under-appreciated species and support emerging sustainable fisheries, progressive aquaculture facilities and FIshery Improvement Projects (FIP5) around the world.
When you partner with us, you gain access to our knowledge base and experience. From menu planning to controlling food costs, we provide valuable insight and proven strategies for our brands.
Sourcing is one of the most important aspects of growing a fast casual brand. Few products present more sourcing challenges than sustainable seafood. Traditional fish sellers typically deliver to only one city or region and most major food service distributors lack a commitment to high-quality, sustainable seafood. Wild Fish Direct fills this gap by providing our responsible fish and shellfish nationwide. As you grow, we grow with you!
