A sustainable food source
Sustainability is a core value of the UHA. We understand that our choices have an impact and that certain food sources are better for the environment.
When a food source is classified as sustainable, it either relates to the management measures (by humans), or the resource abundance and reproduction (biology). Geoduck is both! As a food source, Canadian geoduck is a sustainable choice for the following reasons:
- Geoducks don’t require feed
- They’re strong reproducers
- Harvesting leaves minimal seafloor damage
- It’s a strictly managed resource
Seafood Watch is a science based, world renowned sustainable seafood advisory list from Monterey Bay Aquarium. The list informs seafood purchasing decisions for consumers, chefs, and business professionals.
Seafood Watch program ranks geoduck from Canada as a ‘good alternative’.
