WE’RE NOT DIFFICULT, JUST PICKY.


Some people say that up here in Maine we can be a bit stubborn. At Bristol, we wouldn’t disagree. Because to deliver the best seafood the world over, our standards have to be unwavering. Every day, these standards are what separate us from everyone else. So every day, we come to work and find a way to deliver. Learn more about us »

PARTNERSHIPS & ASSOCIATIONS


The MSC is an international nonprofit organization established to address the problem of unsustainable fishing and safeguard our seafood supplies for the future. At Bristol, we meet the MSC's chain of custody standard, and are audited by a third party to validate our adherence.

The SQF Institute’s vision is to be the single most trusted source for global food safety and quality certification. We earned their certification in 2015, which included an audit of our policies and procedures. We take food safety seriously, and earning the SQF certification is third party validation of our dedication to it.

We are members of GMRI’s Responsibly Harvested program. This program promises the product hails from the clean, productive waters of the Gulf of Maine region, that the fishery is managed in a way that contributes to the long-term health of the resource, and suppliers of Gulf of Maine Responsibly Harvested product commit to continuously improving the sustainability of the seafood industry.

Bristol Seafood is a member of the National Fisheries Institute (NFI) a nonprofit organization dedicated to education about seafood safety, sustainability, and nutrition. From vessels at sea to your favorite seafood restaurant, our diverse member companies bring delicious fish and shellfish to American families.

At Bristol, we are committed to operating responsibly and we are proud to be members of the Better Seafood Board (BSB). The Better Seafood Board was formed in 2007 to support the commitment of NFI members to abide by industry principles of economic integrity by not selling seafood that is short in weight or count, that has the wrong name, or that has been transshipped from one country to another to circumvent duties and tariffs.

We are dedicated to giving back to the Maine economy and proud to be on the Board of Maine & Company. Maine & Company provides free and confidential consulting services to businesses looking to relocate to Maine or expand within Maine.
