Risk analytics for seafood legality and compliance.  Apply today to be an early tester.

Problem Solved

Harvested everywhere and shipped anywhere, seafood is subject to thousands of ever-changing regulations.  Showing that it was sourced legally requires checking technical information for real-world accuracy, a time-consuming and highly specialized process. 


We experienced this firsthand in government and saw a fixable problem, so we spent the last two years quietly building the best risk analytics solution in the world to detect illegal seafood in trade.  What takes hours of an expert's time today can be accomplished by anyone on your team in seconds tomorrow.  We can't wait for you to try it out as a beta tester.


The United States imported over 

$2.4 Billion

of illegal seafood

in 2019 alone.

Quick Answers

What data does SeafoodCheck use to validate my information?

We exclusively use government-issued data because it is the best available information to support regulatory compliance.  We are continually discovering, digitizing and translating a wide array of datasets from around the world.  Many are queried in real-time.

Is SeafoodCheck a sustainability certification?

No. Sustainability ecolabels can't be used to show regulatory compliance because they issue certifications based on a snapshot of a supply chain in time.  What we offer is item-specific legal harvest risk analytics.

Can I use SeafoodCheck with limited information?

Absolutely.  We work with what you have.  Under the hood, a complex series of rules allows us to assess the fishery, vessel, permit and harvest location together or separately.
