SUSTAINABLY HARVESTED Raincoast Trading is committed to fishing with integrity and preserving the well-being of our world marine ecosystems. Owned by a fourth generation fishing family, we wholeheartedly support efforts to minimize overfishing, bycatch, habitat damage and problems associated with farmed salmon. Pole and Line Caught. As part of our ongoing commitment to quality and sustainability, we have designed a system to track the fish from can to boat. Production codes on the bottom of Raincoast cans are designed to give an expiry date, and we also use them to trace the origin of the fish. With this code we can identify the vessel, captain, name, vessel flag, harvest method, area of capture and trip dates. This information is critical in substantiating a sustainability claim. We can (and do) give this information to Ocean Conservation groups as part of an auditing system they do.
This provides them the tools they need to declare Raincoast Trading a great sustainable seafood choice!
