Port Orford Sustainable Seafood
Fisher

At Port Orford Sustainable Seafood (POSS), they eat, drink, and sleep fish.  POSS loves everything about them, in-and-out of the water, and especially on their dinner plates.  They understand the confusion surrounding sustainability.  POSS operates on their commitment to sustainability and the triple bottom line which includes environmental, economic, and social equity aspects.

For POSS, this means supporting their local economies, social equity, and environmental stewardship.  They have three goals that support their triple bottom line commitments:

- To increase the viability of traditional coastal communities by fostering economic opportunities by paying a premium price to our fishermen and improve the economic performance of local fishery businesses and associated community infrastructure.

To ensure that communities have equitable access to fishery resources and provide intergenerational opportunities.

To encourage an ethic of ecological stewardship that results in creative, community-based approaches to conservation.

POSS did not cut out the middle man.  They assumed the responsibility of the middle man.  This has enabled POSS to create jobs for the local economy ranging from sales, distribution, processing, and administrative.

POSS continues to improve their fleets’ bottom line by developing their brand, implementing a marketing strategy for local fisherman owned and operated boats that support fishing for future generations, and promote their local fisheries.  POSS strives to empower local fishermen by creating resiliency in the fishing industry while supporting working waterfronts.  POSS also provides equitable access of high quality seafood to local customers.

POSS strives to sustain the health of their ocean ecosystem by collaborating with scientists and fisheries managers to ensure fishing in the Port Orford Community Stewardship Area (POCSA) will be maintained without exhausting their natural resources.  Their fishermen maintain high gear standards, using selective hook-and-line gear which minimizes by-catch, discards, and habitat destruction.
