Seafood Producers Cooperative (SPC) is a small-scale, sustainable and cooperative Community Foods producer. Owned by over 575 members who fish the waters of the North Pacific, they are the oldest fisher’s cooperative in North America. They were founded to support fisher people in getting the fairest price for their catch and access to processing and packaging.
Seward Co-op’s partnership with Seafood Producers Cooperative began in 2019 to bring even more high quality, sustainable fish to our Meat & Seafood case and community. SPC fish are caught one-by-one through hook-and-line methods and immediately chilled right on the boat. Their fishing methods are sustainable and ensure high quality fish with each catch.
When Seward Co-op shoppers and community members purchase SPC fish, they help SPC survive in the modern seafood distribution system. This is important in maintaining fisher people are fairly paid for their catch and seafood fraud is kept to a minimum. Our direct relationship with SPC not only promotes transparency and traceability in the supply chain, but is also a reflection of the cooperative difference—cooperation among cooperatives.
