SEAFOOD WITHOUT SACRIFICE
Our concerns for the sea and its creatures, as well as our love of good eating fuels the energy and passion that led us to found Good Catch. We keep our mission in mind in everything we do. Good Catch exists to create delicious food and make plant-based options accessible to everyone. We want to provide a choice for more conscious living. Good Catch is here to champion the environment, protect human and animal welfare, and to provide a solution for the complex issues the world faces regarding our oceans. We never forget that it’s our job to make the planet better for our children. Good Catch strives to honor sea life and our ocean ecosystems—because fish have feelings too.
PLANTS VS FISH:
WHICH IS THE BETTER DISH?
We’re glad you’re here, because it means you’re thinking about possibly eating more plant-based. "What the heck is a plant-based diet?" you ask. Our definition means you avoid animal products in favor of plant foods. Now, let’s say you want to stick around for several decades, feel fabulous and have a supercharged life. Plant sources of protein are powerhouses of good nutrition. Plants provide a wealth of phytonutrients, fiber, healthy fats, vitamins and minerals—free of cholesterol—and it’s generally easier for us to digest plant protein versus animal protein. Eating plants can help reduce the risk of developing serious illnesses like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, certain cancers and high blood pressure. You can also ditch the dieting, because plant-based eating helps you maintain a healthy weight. All without harming a single animal.
You’ll also help save the planet. Seriously. Eating plant-based helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and create a more sustainable environment. Raising plants for food takes far less resources, especially water, than raising animals. If more people ate a plant-based diet, we could end factory farming of fish and animals and allow over-fished sea creatures to make a comeback.
GOOD CATCH, ALL GOOD
You’ll love Good Catch, whether you already enjoy a plant-based diet or are just trying something new. In addition to introducing more life-enhancing plant options into your diet, when you substitute plant foods for fish and shellfish, you not only save lives, but you help reduce harmful fish farming and overfishing practices that are polluting and depleting our oceans. Just think, with every bite, you help protect the oceans and ecosystems, humans and animals. That puts the good in Good Catch.
SAVING OUR SEAS–
AND OUR SELVES
"With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea".
– Sylvia Earle, oceanographer and explorer
At Good Catch, we love to have fun. But one thing we’re truly serious about is saving the oceans and the sea creatures that call it home. We make ocean conservation our priority because the health and survival of our seas are literally a matter of life and death for every living thing on the planet. Humans cannot sustain their lives without a clean, vital ocean. Just a few facts: The Earth’s oceans contain at least 96% of its water. Our drinking water, climate, food, weather, coastlines and half the oxygen we breathe all depend on the oceans. More than three billion people rely on the oceans and sea life for their livelihood. These massive bodies of water cushion some of the effects of global warming by absorbing a third of the carbon dioxide we generate.
The list of the crucial benefits of our oceans goes on and on––and so do the destructive acts we have done as a species in a short amount of time to ruin the ocean’s ecosystem. The oceans swallow almost 12 million metric tons of plastic each year. Our garbage and discarded plastic trap and kill sea creatures like birds and turtles. Fish ingest the microplastic remnants along with mercury and other contaminants, and when they end up on our table, we consume the poisons we discarded.
We believe there is hope, beginning with what each of us can do. We offer Good Catch as an option to eating fish and shellfish, because overfishing has depleted so many ocean species, the ecosystem is starving and other sea life are dying off. We will do whatever we can in our power to educate and advocate, holding the vision of a pristine, thriving ocean in our future.
