Seafood America joins NFI Crab Council

crab Seafood America is the Crab Council’s 29th company

Seafood America has become The National Fisheries Institute’s (NFI) Crab Council’s latest member.

Historically, Seafood America has only sourced crabmeat from NFI Crab Council members and is currently supporting the council’s sustainability mission by contributing to blue swimming crab resource management in Southeast Asia.

“Seafood America has long partnered with Crab Council members,” said Seafood America president, Jim Burke. “Now a member ourselves, we’ve joined these committed companies in order to strengthen our shared interest in responsible harvest and supply chain practices.”

First non-importing member

Seafood America is the Crab Council’s 29th company and its first non-importing, processor member.

The NFI Crab Council was founded in 2009 and funds blue swimming crab sustainability projects through contributions from participating companies and has received grants from the World Bank, the Walton Family Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.

Its membership includes US and international crab companies.

Growth

The inclusion of companies outside of the crab market’s importing sphere has seen the organisation grow, according to Crab Council chairman, Brendan Sweeny.

“What started as an importer-focused effort has broadened to encompass a diverse range of companies,” said Mr Sweeny. “Seafood America is a company that doesn’t import raw crab product itself but produces things like value added crab cakes, available at the retail level.

“Their addition to the group brings the Crab Council’s story from a business-to-businesses context all the way to the consumer-level.

“With their addition we see producers, importers and independent processors all involved and committed to one goal, an important evolution and amplification of crab sustainability.”
