COVID-19 and the Commercial Seafood Industry

The regional and national response to prevent the spread of COVID-19 has thrust the commercial seaood industry into an unprecedented and uncertain situation. As resources for commercial fishermen and the seafood industry become available, we will post them here. 


Find Gulf Seafood

While many restaurants may be closed, commercial fishermen and seafood businesses are finding ways to safely provide fresh, wild-caught, sustainable Gulf of Mexico seafood to the public. Find a business that is either shipping seafood or providing pick up services.

About Us

Our Work


Reef Fish Quota Bank

 The Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Shareholders’ Alliance launched the first Quota Bank in the Gulf of Mexico in 2015 to reduce red snapper discards in the eastern Gulf and to support the next generation of commercial red snapper fishermen.


Policy Work

We believe that it is our responsibility to support good science and data, to educate regional and federal regulators, and to play an active role in shaping our commercial fishing regulations.


Young Fishermen

We are working to support the next generation of conservation-minded commercial fishermen that are stepping up to carry on a tradition that has existed for hundreds of years in the Gulf of Mexico.


Outreach and Media

We help tell your story to the world – a story of hard-working men and women who believe in a future where policies are based on sound science, where fishermen collaborate with regulators, and where wild, sustainably-harvested seafood continues to feed the American public.


Gulf Wild™


When you see a Gulf Wild™ tag or notice the Gulf Wild™ brand in your local restaurant or fish market, you know that you are supporting the only seafood traceability program in the nation that was built by fishermen for fishermen.
