A recent study has shown that the continuous exploitation of sea creatures and their natural habitat may lead to the complete depletion of saltwater fish by 2048. This has led more companies to adopt sustainable ways to harvest seafood products without impacting the ocean environment and long-term fish supply.
At Tommy’s Seafood, sustainability is at the core of what we do. We are a tried and trusted Louisiana seafood company in New Orleans supplying only the freshest, highest quality seafood to restaurants and retailers across the region.
Our approach to sustainability
As a Louisiana seafood company in New Orleans, Tommy's Seafood catches wild, American, sustainable bivalves and shellfish and offers them to distributors and restaurants. We've been doing this for more than 30 years.
We have provided sustainable, wild-caught seafood, such as crawfish, Gulf oysters, blue crab, and wild shrimp, to clients, including the finest restaurants on the land. Our seafood comes from the surrounding waters of the Gulf Coast and Lake Pontchartrain.
We have obtained high sustainability marks from the Marine Stewardship and Council (MSC) and the Audubon Nature Institute. Here at Tommy's, sustainable fishing is more than a business; it's our way of life and advocacy.
Committed to our clients, the economy, and the environment

Some companies offer more considerable funds to support related projects but continue to source less sustainable products. While others, including Tommy's, give their full commitment to sourcing sustainable seafood exclusively.
Companies also differ in their definition of sustainability, making it quite challenging to make an on-point comparison. Certain companies commit to traceability and social sustainability, while some businesses focus on environmental equilibrium.

Many consumers pay attention to where their meat and vegetables are sourced. It's time to spend the same effort learning where your seafood comes from.
All you need to do is ask.
When eating or buying seafood, you can ask the store or restaurant where they source their supplies. You can also check the certifications that usually come with the packaging.
Buying domestic is a two-fold loyalty and patriotic duty of both the suppliers and consumers. From the dock to the plate — that’s how it should be.
