Aldergrove Otter Co-op part of new program

The Aldergrove Otter Co-op is among the many communities taking part in a sustainable seafood program.

The Reel in the Solution! program was developed by the Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) in partnership with SeaChoice, a consortium of five nationally respected Canadian conservation organizations that undertake scientific assessment of the environmental sustainability of wild fisheries and aquaculture products.

FCL has worked with SeaChoice in identifying fresh and frozen seafood products in three categories: ‘avoid’, ‘some concerns’ and ‘best choice.’

A green ‘best choice’ sticker is for those products that are well managed, abundant and caught or farmed in environmentally sustainable ways.

A yellow label identifies ‘some concern’ products while red is for ‘avoid.’

In addition to the new labeling, customers will have access to handouts, pocket guides and posters to assist them.
