Browne Trading’s Commitment to Responsible Seafood Sourcing

Browne Trading Company is committed to the purchase and supply of responsibly sourced seafoods. We believe we can supply our customers’ seafood needs without compromising the future health of our oceans’ fish.

To that end, we:

  • Seek out wild fish harvested from State, Federal and Internationally regulated Managed Fisheries designed to sustain the resource, with an emphasis on purchasing fish caught with low-impact fishing methods.
  • Purchase farmed fish, shellfish, and caviars from “best practice” aquaculture facilities, with an emphasis on ecologically-minded farms with all-natural raising techniques.
  • Support our local New England fleets, farms and fishing communities and uphold our long tradition of promoting Maine’s pristine seafood.
  • Believe that it’s our responsibility to inform and educate our customers about where their seafood comes from, with an emphasis on traceability of product.  We seek to empower all our customers to make seafood purchasing choices that best suit the needs of their kitchens.

It is our goal to continue sourcing the finest seafood and freshest caviar, provide exemplary service to our distinguished clientele, support sustainable fisheries and continue the pursuit of perfection in our business. We believe that quality, dependability, service and trust set us apart from other companies.
