Sustainability

The Pacific Northwest — home to lush evergreen forests, icy mountain streams, the majestic Columbia River, and wild seafood processed at Bornstein Seafoods. We have nearly 80 years experience processing wild natural fish and shellfish in our Oregon and Washington plants. Our longevity in the seafood industry stems from our commitment to sustainability in seafood sourcing, packaging, people and the environment.
Bornstein Seafoods sustainability policy is to purchase based upon harvest methods that meet strict management guidelines; to secure equitable sharing amongst all users, and to maintain our ecosystem for future generations in the Pacific Northwest.
Core to fulfilling these policies are our 20, 30, and even 40 year employees and their family members who can be found filleting and packaging fish, picking crab and shrimp meat, and selling our Bornstein product lines globally. Whether it’s donating time and resources to programs like the Clatsop County Fisheries Program or researching new packaging technology to reduce our carbon footprint, Bornstein Seafoods employees are engaged in making innovative choices that help us move towards the best sustainable practices.
Bornstein Seafoods also partners with the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) to help promote sustainable fishing practices and seafood traceability. All of our processing facilities are certified by the MSC and among the many species we process, five have received MSC certification — Albacore Tuna, Dungeness Crab, Oregon Pink Shrimp, Sardines and Pacific Whiting.
