Sustainability

As an importer of a wide range of wild-caught and farm-raised seafood products sourced from all over the world, it is essential that PanaPesca USA supports the development of sustainability initiatives and organizations committed to improving seafood, fishery, and marine ecosystem sustainability.


Safe and Conscientious Seafood Procurement

Amid pressure on global seafood stocks from overfishing and environmentally unfriendly catch methods, it has never been more important for members of the seafood industry to be conscientious about where they source their products. To better serve the needs of our customers and ensure that future generations have access to quality seafood, PanaPesca USA has made a commitment to ensuring our products are procured in a safe, environmentally conscious, and socially responsible way.


Sustainable from Catch to Table

We strive to source all of our wild-caught and farm-raised shellfish and finfish from our partner network of sustainable fisheries and farms around the world, with each product packed to our specifications. This gives us traceability on the products we sell, including which farm or fishery it came from, where it was caught, and when the catch was landed. When you buy PanaPesca products, you’re also supporting the fishermen and coastal communities who consciously make an effort to care for the environment.

Our stewardship of the oceans also extends to our customers including broadline and independent food service distributors, national and regional restaurant chains, retailers, hotels, catering providers, and buying groups. We are proud to provide these organizations with sustainable seafood solutions.
