Sustainable seafood is seafood either from fished or farmed sources that can maintain or increase production in the future without jeopardizing the ecosystems from which it was acquired. Sea Delight, LLC understands the importance of supporting fishing practices which help maintain and increase the species' ability to maintain its population.

Sea Delight is committed to supporting sustainable fisheries by participating in sustainability workshops and partnering with our suppliers to cooperate with appropriate NGO's (non-government organizations) and join the Trace Register web-based traceability program. We support fisheries stakeholders in working towards the goal of Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certification.
We are also proud to share that Sea Delight became the first company to receive official membership in the WWF-Indonesia's corporate engagement program, SEAFOOD SAVERS, their inter-business cooperation plan for sustainable fisheries in support of Sea Delight's current Fishery Improvement Projects (FIP) in Indonesia.
As the leading corporate member of SEAFOOD SAVERS, the initiative by WWF Indonesia for responsible fisheries towards Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) certification, Sea Delight, in partnership with WWF Indonesia Seafood Savers, is engaged in a fisheries improvement program for these particular seafood products: Yellowfin tuna, wild caught; Southeast Java Tuna handline Fishery, from Indian Ocean (Indonesia FMA 573), and wild caught, Central Sulawesi handline Snapper and Grouper Fishery.

Sea Delight is devoted to the environment and protecting seafood resources by supporting the current sustainable seafood movement and has developed working relationships with NGOs (non-government organizations) like WWF Indonesia, WWF Vietnam and WWF Coral Triangle Network Initiative to bring awareness of both overfishing and environmentally destructive fishing methods. We are also a proud partner of the The Vancouver Aquarium Ocean Wise Program and FishWise.
In order to support existing marine conservation efforts and develop new programs, we founded in 2012 the Sea Delight Ocean Fund, a 501 (c)(3), which mission is to support global fishery improvement projects and better fishing practices initiatives, create and promote awareness for responsible fishing practices and adequate management of the fishery, minimize the impact of bycatch and human activity on the environment; and educate the public on the need to support these programs in order to protect marine resources.
