Through our Responsible Sourcing Vendor Partner program (RSVP), Santa Monica Seafood has supported sustainability improvements in fisheries worldwide.
The Peruvian Mahi Mahi fishery is considered one of the most important artisanal fisheries in Peru, providing a livelihood for over 4,000 fishermen. Peru is the largest producer of Mahi Mahi worldwide, with the US being the primary export market.
With funds provided by RSVP, the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is working with fishery stakeholders in Peru to implement a comprehensive fishery improvement project (FIP). WWF is working to move the fishery towards the globally recognized Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) sustainability standard, a product Santa Monica Seafood would be proud to supply to our customers.
