SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD

Sustainable Seafood - Sunset

Without the ocean, there would be no fish. Without fish, there would be no Rubio's. It's why we're so passionate about serving sustainable seafood whenever possible. And why we celebrate the ocean and its delicious bounty.

Why is sustainable seafood important?

By choosing sustainable seafood you help preserve ocean species and ensure a healthy ocean for future generations. Go the extra nautical mile and choose sustainable seafood when possible.

We take great pride in our commitment to the ocean; we personally visit our suppliers to ensure they maintain sustainable fishing practices that meet our quality standards. Ralph Rubio

Certification Standards

FAO-Based Responsible Fishery Management Certification

Alaska takes marine conservation seriously. Alaska is the only state with a constitutional mandate for sustainability. Alaska now participates in the FAO-Based Responsible Fisheries Management (RFM) Certification program. This certification shows that Alaska's fisheries meet the criteria of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries, the most comprehensive and respected fisheries management guidelines in the world.

Best Aquaculture Practices

The Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) standards address environmental and social responsibility, animal welfare, food safety and traceability in a voluntary certification program for aquaculture facilities. BAP certification defines the most important elements of responsible aquaculture and provides quantitative guidelines by which to evaluate adherence to those practices.

Global Aquaculture Alliance

The Global Aquaculture Alliance  is a worldwide third-party certification organization with a set of certification standards - the Best Aquaculture Practices - for hatcheries, farms, processing facilities and feed mills. These standards were developed to protect and monitor environmental impact, food safety and traceability. In adopting these standards, the seafood industry can better meet the demands of the growing global market for wholesome seafood produced in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.

Mahi Mahi

While our Alaska Pollock, Atlantic Salmon, Shrimp, and Tilapia are sustainable, there are certain fish – like Mahi Mahi – where sustainable isn't possible yet. Hopefully that changes. Mostly for the sake of the Mahi Mahi, whom we love.
