Is your seafood sustainable?
Off the Hook Seafood sources products from sustainable sources whenever possible. We believe it is our responsibility to serve our oceans through a continuous commitment to sustainable fishing practices that protect our fisheries.

Our dedication to sustainable efforts goes beyond our commitment to oceans and fisheries. We recognize taking care of our earth is critical for the health of our oceans, as well as the communities where we reside. We are dedicated to reducing, reusing, and recycling in every area we can to conserve resources.

Is your seafood wild-caught or farm-raised?
We offer both wild-caught and farm-raised seafood. Wild stock alone cannot meet the growing demand for seafood. That is why we include products from sustainable farming operations. Sustainable aquaculture helps meet seafood demand by complementing wild stocks. This ensures the broadest selection of species, so everyone can enjoy the bounty of the world’s oceans and rivers. No matter where it comes from, Off The Hook Seafood is committed to providing customers with the freshest, most sustainable, highest-quality product on the market.
