The History of Wild Planet
Wild Planet was founded by seafood industry veteran William (Bill) Carvalho. With over 25 years of experience under his belt, Carvalho founded the seafood company Carvalho Fisheries in 1990. Over the years, Carvalho Fisheries grew to become a major primary receiver and producer of a wide range of West Coast seafood products. This evolution eventually prompted Carvalho to launch Wild Planet Foods in 2004, which maintains his dedication to harvesting great food through sustainable fishing practices.
Wild Planet Company Mission
Wild Planet believes that food is one of the most vital resources we obtain from our planet on a daily basis, but the health of our food is tied to the health of our planet, as well as our own health. This is why Wild Planet pledges to:
- The biomass of fish (aka the overall mass of fish in a particular ecosystem) must be healthy and not overfished
- The habitat cannot be damaged by the fishing method
- The catch method is virtually free from bycatch of early juvenile fish and other non-targeted species
- Any incidental catch of non-target species is retained and utilized (not discarded)
- Must adhere to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program consumer ranking system as a sustainable product source
