Morey's Seafood Company

Morey’s Seafood Company

Morey’s Seafood, one of the nation’s top seafood companies, is proud to be affiliated with the National Fisheries Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to seafood education and stewardship. Known for its commitment to quality, Morey’s Seafood maintains stringent standards of quality control and food safety, and adheres to strict policies regarding sustainable seafood harvesting. It’s only natural, then, that the company would cultivate affiliations with similarly minded organizations, committed to seafood industry best practices, and to maintaining a sustainable food source. The National Fisheries Institute is one such organization.

The National Fisheries Institute and its partners seek to be good stewards of the environment, adhering to the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Fisheries. This is because they know that investing in the seas today will reap the rewards of plentiful fish and seafood for our children, and generations to come. Located in McLean Virginia, the National Fisheries Institute headquarters is the base of operations for the organization, whose member companies span many different aspects of the seafood business, from fishing vessel operators, to seafood restaurants, to seafood companies. Because of their appreciation for seafood, all of these businesses have come together to support the NFI’s goals of  advocating responsible aquaculture, supporting free trade, and promoting the implementation of sound public policy, based on scientific facts.

Dedicated to providing education about seafood safety, sustainability, and nutrition, the National Fisheries Institute is also an important resource for information on fish and sea food. This commitment to education is clearly demonstrated on their website, AboutSeafood.com, which contains a wealth of information, including seafood recipes and nutritional facts.  Chockfull of entertaining blog posts, interesting information, tips and advice from experts, and even seafood related news, this site is well worth browsing through, whether you’re trying to plan dinner or wondering about the health benefits of seafood.

Because of a deeply held belief in the value of incorporating seafood into a healthy lifestyle, Morey’s Seafood has been committed to providing high quality seafood, in a convenient way, to encourage healthy eating. In addition, the company actively seeks to partner with organizations that promote sustainable harvesting of seafood, and have an environmental conscience.
