commitment to sustainble sourcing

At Kanaloa Seafood Company we call our mission statement "Kina’ole," which means “doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, in the right place, to the right person, for the right reason, with the right feeling…every time.”

We love fish. Fish are our business, our passion, and our livelihood. We feel a deep responsibility to promote and support environmentally responsible, scientifically sustainable fisheries. Clearly the stakes are huge, and when it comes the health of the oceans, we are all stake-holders

Don and Randee Disraeli have been sourcing fresh seafood for Kanaloa since 1983.  From the beginning, they have taken a comprehensive approach with includes full eco-system evaluation and audits.  By assessing entire regions, including the people living around and fishing the waters, their practices along with the delicate balance of the surrounding ecosystem, Don and Randee are able to dynamically source a complete seafood portfolio and create lasting relationships with fishing communities who are actively engaged in protecting their waters and livelihood.

As part of their ISO accreditation, Kanaloa undergoes environmental audits every six months.  This audit covers not only Kanaloa and their processing and local business practices, but it also includes auditing of their suppliers.  Understanding that their suppliers are fishing communities across the globe, this ISO accreditation process means that all of their seafood suppliers are continuously being assessed as well.  

Kanaloa seafood’s engagement with evolving evaluation means that smaller and progressive fisheries do not fall through the cracks. Having an internationally recognized external auditing system in place allows Kanaloa seafood to work with engaged fishermen who aspire to make their practices better with every fishing season.
