Worldfishing and Aquaculture highlights Sea Pact, a coalition formed by six North American seafood suppliers to advance environmentally sustainable fisheries  and aquaculture practices.

The six companies – Albion Fisheries, Fortune Fish & Gourmet, Ipswich Shellfish Group, Santa Monica Seafood, Seacore Seafood and Seattle Fish Co. – are striving to… provide the building blocks of a long term and sustainable seafood industry by financially contributing to improve the fishing and fish farming systems from which they procure.
Logan Kock, Vice President of Strategic Purchasing & Responsible Sourcing at Santa Monica Seafood, said, ‘Santa Monica Seafood realised that to be able to support the improvement of fishing and aquaculture practices around the world we could not rely on the efforts of our company alone and that we would need support from other like-minded companies in the seafood industry to help create the scale necessary for meaningful improvements to be realized.’

I was born in Croatia, at that time Yugoslavia. My family moved to the US when I was very young, but I still treasure the memories of my grandfather teaching me how to protect myself against the "evil eye," my grandmother shopping early every morning, at the open air market, to buy the freshest vegetables for the day's meals, and the traditions that were the underpinnings of our society. Someone once noted that "For all of us that want to move forward, there are a very few that want to keep the old methods of production, traditions and crafts alive." I am a fellow traveler with those who value the old traditions and folk wisdom. I believe the knowledge they possess can contribute significantly to our efforts to build a more sustainable world; one that values the individual over the corporation, conservation over growth and happiness over wealth.
