Scout Cannery is on a mission to help restore the tradition of preserved seafood for North America. They believe oceans can provide sustenance to the world's growing population if we can stop overfishing popular species, like tuna. Their fishermen are paid fair wages so there is full traceability from boat to your plate.
Scout’s MSC Certified Wild Albacore tuna is harvested between Oregon and British Columbia. They source their tuna from a single vessel, where they are harvested one-by-one, using hooks on a long line, never going lower than a few meters, ensuring little to no bycatch of non-target species.
There are several species of tuna and it’s important to identify which ones you are consuming. Today, the Pacific Northwest Albacore stock are healthy and abundant, making this tuna fishery one of the most responsible in the world. The Albacore are harvested at 2-4 years old, so their size, migratory patterns and diet give them the lowest mercury levels on the planet.
Scout’s MSC Certified Lobster is from their Eastern Canada offshore lobster fishery which uses baited traps and ensures sustainable fishing by applying restricted season openings and minimum lobster sizes. Thus, smaller lobsters have a chance to grow and spawn, maintaining a healthy population. The traps have an escape mechanism and use biodegradable twine, which allow undersized lobsters and non-target species to get out through vents or escape if traps are lost.
Scout sources their Rainbow Trout from the Cole Munro family in Ontario, Canada. The fish are responsibly farmed under a partnership model with trout farmers in the region, ensuring all trout are raised under the same policies. Their feed is sourced from Skretting, a Best Aquaculture Practice (BAP) Certified fish feed mill. The fresh water trout are never exposed to antibiotics and are not susceptible to the same diseases as other salmonids. The Cole Munro family has a vertically integrated operation from hatchery (hatching baby trout called fingerlings) to final delivery at their cannery on the east coast.
Mussels are grown on ropes, known in the seafaring world as “line.” Mussel seed is stuffed into socks and then farmed in open inlets off the coast of Prince Edward Island. Mussel aquaculture is zero-input, making it one of the most sustainable protein sources in the world. Not to mention that mussels (bivalves) eat by straining plankton and other particulates from the water, so they clean the water as they eat, preventing algae blooms. They also sequester carbon as they form their shells.
