Florida-based company, Sea Delight, has joined the National Fisheries Institute’s Crab Council as its 33rd member and the NFI Red Crab Council as its 11th member.

Founded in 2006, Sea Delight recently expanded its product list to include both blue and red swimming crabmeat, a business-decision paired with membership to NFI’s crab sustainability efforts.

“Sea Delight upholds strict product integrity specifications throughout our supply chain,” said vice president of sales, Alex Cook. “A central feature of our new line of crabmeat products is Sea Delight’s commitment to crab sustainability throughout its value chain including Southeast Asia and China, a principal we are proud to demonstrate by joining the NFI Crab Council and Red Crab Council.”

The Red Crab Council funds fishery improvement projects (FIP) in Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Sri Lanka and India. Funding for this industry-led effort comes from an assessment placed on member imports of crabmeat.

Additionally, the Red Crab Council supports management of China’s red crab fishery located in the Fujian Province. Launched in 2018, the red crab FIP maintains strong partnerships with in-country processor and marketing associations and is currently engaged in the collection and examination of catch, effort and biological data as well as harvest management analysis.

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, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Seafood Industry Research Fund.
