Organic Ocean was established by independent West Coast fishermen who felt a balance had to be struck between their traditional way of life and the impact on the fisheries. The company pledged to take seafood traceability to the highest level by becoming the first seafood supplier in the world to provide DNA certification of authenticity to our products. In addition, they are part of the Ocean Wise seafood program, a certified B Corporation, and a member of 1% for the Planet.
Harvested from the frigid waters of the North Pacific, Organic Ocean’s halibut is considered one of the finest examples of white-fleshed seafood. To ensure that these fish are produced in compliance with the guiding principles established by the recognized sustainable seafood certification bodies, they must be harvested from stocks that are healthy, abundant and managed to maintain or increase their populations while minimizing impact on the habitat, bycatch and other marine life. Organic Ocean’s Pacific halibut is harvested by hook and line along the west Coast of Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii.
Prized for the delicate flavor and firm texture of its sparkling white, almost translucent flesh, the lean white meat of the Pacific halibut is high in protein and low in sodium, fat and calories.
