A Sustainable Gulf
With more than half a million square miles of rich natural habitat, the U.S. Gulf of Mexico is home to numerous species of fish and shellfish. These abundant resources support multi-billion dollar fishing industries that supply nearly a fifth of the domestic seafood available in the contiguous United States and provide millions of anglers with some of the finest sportfishing in the world.
In the Gulf, we understand that to continue to benefit from these resources we must protect them and the environment that nurtures them. We must ensure our fisheries operate sustainably, conserving fish, shellfish, and their ecosystems while supporting the communities and economies that depend on them.
Use FINFO to discover how we maintain this delicate balance through scientifically monitoring and actively managing our fisheries. Buy Gulf seafood with confidence knowing that scientists, managers, and the fishing industry are working hard to keep these resources productive for generations to come.
