About Good Catch:

Good Catch was developed to heighten awareness of sourcing and selling sustainable seafood – all in an effort to provide consumers, diners and restaurants with the information necessary to choose responsibly harvested seafood. The program aims to remind communities that a Good Catch is sustainable – one that is caught or farmed with consideration for the long-term viability of their species and for the ocean’s ecological balance as a whole. More than 115 trusted restaurant partners throughout the state continue to share the same mission of selecting species from sustainably managed fisheries.
