Sustainable Seafood

The Big Carrot Gets Ocean Wise

At the Big Carrot all of our fresh and frozen seafood is Ocean Wise approved. Overfishing and poor practices are one of the largest issues facing oceans today. Ocean Wise approved seafood ensures research has been conducted to show that this fish/seafood is abundant, well managed and caught by fishing methods that minimize impacts on non-target species as well as the surrounding habitat.

We partner with Ocean Wise, Canada's leading ocean conservation organization, to make it easier than ever for our shoppers to enjoy sustainably-caught seafood. This partnership supports our ability to maintain complete and transparent information about all of our seafood products. So no need to fish for information- we have done it all for you. We commit to clearly label all Ocean Wise products so you can feel confident you are making the best choice for the health of our lakes, rivers and oceans.
